comment Automatic Excommunication
I've now made this a more obvious Catholic doctrine question and less a pastoral advice question. Latae sententiae excommunication is remissible and Wikipedia has an article.

comment Blessings of the Priest
Do you mean that every St Benedict cross/medal must be blessed, or that it doesn't have to be but if it is then then only an ordained person can do it? The OSB itself suggests the latter.

comment What do the Catholic Church consider constitutes intrinsically impossible things?
I've already got that. "God does not include them in his will or justice." Not doing what is contrary to his own nature is exactly what Aquinas is saying.

comment Can you re-enter the catholic church after leaving?
Baptismal records (and those of confirmations and other ecclesial events) are never expunged. It's a historical record of an actual fact.

comment First Confession for a Protestant becoming Catholic
On the other hand, being truly remorseful for a sin may mean accepting a temporal punishment, and the acceptance of that could be an indicator of how sincere the remorse is.

comment According to the Catholic Church, does abortion need to be confessed, and is it a mortal or venial sin?
As a side point, particularly with this first confession before joining the Church, always confess everything, and if you feel "I really don't want to mention that" then it's definitely something which should be confessed.
