Confession
Question from Regina on 1/28/2013:

I am over 80 and go to Mass and Communion every Sunday. I take nerve medicine and am scrupulous. Do I have to go to confession? I have been advised not to repeat old sins.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 1/30/2013:

Regina--

You should heed your confessor's advice not to repeat old sins, but that does not mean that you should not go to confession. When you go, tell the priest your new sins, even if you have committed the same sins in the past. If the priest thinks these are old sins, you can say politely, "Father, these are sins I have committed again since my last confession."
