Catholic Word of the Day: SCRUPULOSITY, 05-0-13
| Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary
Posted on 05/01/2013 10:17:41 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random):
The habit of imagining sin where none exists, or grave sin where the matter is venial. To overcome scrupulosity, a person needs to be properly instructed in order to form a right conscience, and in extreme cases the only remedy is absolute obedience (for a time) to a prudent confessor.

I think we are all guilty of scrupulosity at one time or another in our lives.

("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
NO SUCH thing a grave or venial sin..Rom 3:23..there is no spiritual weight to sin..it is all level.
THIS is why I left Catholicism..too much of the wishy-washy aspects of GOD.
