Franciscan Father Greg Friedman answers these pastoral questions: What is the Church's position on circumcision of infants? Are adults who became Christians and were confirmed as adults required to be confirmed again if they subsequently become Catholic? Should we receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often, or only when we're conscious of having committed serious or mortal sin?
