Well, here I am.

I'm just always tired. I like hot cheetos.
And I'm a practicing Catholic which is always nice.

Hello Father, I just went to confession and the priest told me to look up scrupulous and I did but I don't see what he meant. I asked him why he told me to look it up and he said "look it up". Is there a sin of scrupulosity? How does one commit it and how should one avoid it?

fatherangel:

Hello,

It sounds like the priest was concerned that you were being too hard on yourself in confession. Or, perhaps, he felt that you were putting too much emphasis on your unworthiness or God’s “anger” and not enough attention on the grace of Christ and the compassion of God.

A good confession is not just recounting our sins, but doing so with great trust in a God who is smiling down upon us, so that if we do not confess perfectly or forget things or leave out details, it is alright. God will not get mad at us.

Scrupulosity is not a sin. It is a certain suffering in our mind which makes us focus on our failures. To compensate for failure, we seek after perfection and become more discouraged when we confess and then repeat some of the same sins instead of becoming perfect. 

In some cases, people might be suffering from an obsessive compulsive disorder and need even to seek therapy. It is too bad that Father didn’t explain this to you but that is what he was getting at. Here is an excellent article which circulates occasionally on the Catholic blogs:

God bless and take care, Fr. Angel
