That I can overcome Scrupulosity and acedia

Not open for further replies.


I went to confession yesterday and I’m concerned that somehow I am in a state of mortal sin. I have this idea that with all the private revelations about hell, I am probably doing way worse than I think I am, and I am never really at peace when I go to communion. I also am struggling with an emotional sluggishness regarding spiritual things that is some of the most oppressive I have felt in months. I just wanted to ask you guys for prayer that the Holy Spirit would help me.
Pray, read good books like the works of St. Francis de Sales & St. Alphonsus de Liguori. Most of all, talk to your priest. If he’s not available, find someone who can help you.

I’ve been in your shoes before. You will get through this but to paraphrase Churchill, it’s going to cost a lot of prayer, blood, sweat and tears.

Mother of Sorrows, pray for us!
Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility
and Mother of Hope,
look upon Bdonoho in this time
of weakness and unrest.

Teach her searching heart
to know that God’s Love
for her is unchanging and
unchangeable, and, that
true human love can only
begin and grow by touching
His Love.

Let your gentle Peace -
which this world cannot give
  • be always with her.
    And, help her to bring this
    same Peace into the lives
    of others.
Our Lady of Mental Peace,
  • Pray for us!
Prayed for your intention in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Padre Pio:

“Jesus has forgiven your sins. The enemy will try to convince you of the contrary to give you discomfort and desperation.”

Please don’t let him. GOD bless.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the Earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy

Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
