Mortal and Venial Sins

See CCC §1855-9

 

Sins are rightly evaluated according to their gravity. The distinction between mortal and venial sin, already evident in the Scripture; became part of the apostolic tradition of the Church. It is corroborated by human experience.

Mortal sin destroys charity in the heart of the sinner. It requires a new initiative of God’ s mercy and a conversion of heart which is normally accomplished within the sacrament of Reconciliation,

For a sin to be mortal, three conditions must be present: grave matter, full knowledge of the evil of the act, and full consent of the will. Those who commit and remain in mortal sin are excluded from the kingdom of God; they are separated from Jesus; they evict the Holy Spirit from their hearts. They incapacitate themselves for life in the Church, particularly for the reception of Holy Communion, which expresses and nourishes the living unity of humankind redeemed in Jesus.
