Summary

Summary

Based on twenty-five years of questions and answers to the SA newsletter, this book is written for those who suffer scruples and those who care about them. It is a handy resource in times of doubt, helping the afflicted better understand scrupulosity, offering spiritual counsel, and encouraging healthy faith. Characterized by thoughts that can't seem to be shaken, and often described as a thousand frightening fantasies or like being constantly and unrelentedly pricked by a pin, scrupulosity afflicts tens of thousands of individuals, many Catholic. Their nagging questions and concerns are related to sin, confession, self-worth, sexuality, prayer, God's forgiveness, thoughts, dreams, and fantasies, and other areas. Fr. Santa has written a reassuring book, one that will ease a person's doubts and help restore true peace of mind and soul. It is a much-needed work that will also be welcomed by confessors and those in the helping profession.
