I'm coming from a Catholic background and was just baptized Orthodox at Pascha. I'm having issues. In Catholicism it was easy - if you committed a "mortal" sin you had to confess it before receiving communion. If it was venial, communion itself would clear it up. In Orthodoxy there's no such distinction, right? So my conscience, which is linked to a relatively obsessive-compulsive brain, is running wild. I wind up confessing every week, because I sin all the time, and who do I think I am to judge which sins are serious and which aren't? Is being very bad at doing the Wednesday and Friday fasts something one needs to confess? Is judging something one needs to confess? These are things that I struggle with all the time, but I do struggle. I'm not sure what to make of it. Thoughts?
