Taking Holy Communion after Accidental Profanity
#1
Hi everyone!. My first post here.

Can one take Holy Communion after accidental profanity or accidental use of the Lord's name in vain?

On Saturday I went to confession. After wards I used profanity in my head out of pure habit. I thought the following: "There is no way I am going to stop going to f****** Church." Is this a mortal sin?

I didn't mean to use a curse word to describe Church but it just popped into my head. Regardless, on Sunday, I partook in the Eucharist because I didn't mean to even THINK such a thing.

But I was worried I had committed a mortal sin before Communion, which is itself a mortal sin. I must advise that I suffer from OCD scrupulosity so I don't trust my own judgment! My confessor knows I'm scrupulous.  I'm just afraid my parish priests are too forgiving.

I have lived a profane and licentious lifestyle for 20+ years so, although I no longer utter profanity or blaspheme out loud, in my thoughts I use them, fairly unintentionally. I also habitually say things in my head like "Oh my" "Oh dear", and "Oh my ---", and "Oh dear ---" which I consider to be using the Lord's name in vein.


Thank you.
