Any recommendations?


Holy Innocents springs to mind?

I wouldn't.  Receiving Holy Communion is not a weekly obligation.  I have "accidentally" let out an oath without thinking much about it, like out of habit.  I went to confession because it seemed obvious that there still was some reflection and penance that I needed to do in the profanity department.

And I sure would not trust some long-winded treatise suggesting that it's OK.

Hi Matas,

I am not talking about profanity out loud. I am talking about thoughts.
For example in my head I'll think "Where are my d*** keys?" Or far worse, "I'll think to say my **** prayers."

All the priests I've talked to say I'm not sinning since they are automatic thoughts.

You did describe cussing in your mind.  But you also did ask, "Can one take Holy Communion after accidental profanity or accidental use of the Lord's name in vein?" (It is actually "vain" not "vein.")

I've heard that from priests too, that it is not a sin if one just thought something or dreamt it.

Oh I see. Yes. If I say the Lord's name in vain out loud, I will confess before Communion for sure, accidental or not.
