Understanding and Dealing with Scrupulosity (Spiritual Stigmata)

Do you constantly worry that you have committed a moral sin? Do you often refrain from receiving Holy Communion, even though you just went to confession, because you fear you had an immoral thought between confession and the chalice? Michael Lofton addresses these and other questions by explaining how to understand and deal with scrupulosity, which is what he calls “spiritual stigmata.”
