Now you’re clearly detailing the matter. Once again, I refer you to AAA’s advice, referenced in the link above.
Again, please keep in mind the three requirements for mortal sin: grave matter, full knowledge, and full and free consent of the will. If any of those three requirements are missing, there is not a mortal sin. So the question is not “Is profanity a mortal sin?” but “Is profanity grave matter?” This holds true with just about every questionable action to trouble the human conscience:
Since you meant no contempt, it sounds to me more like annoyance at his advice, coupled with your bad habit of crude language, even though it was just in thought.
I was told in confession that the only sin I’m committing is not going to Communion and that unless I’m certain I committed a mortal sin I’m to go to Communion.
Hopefully, you misunderstood him, or he was not clear enough in his counsel to you. There is no sin in omitting communion, but he probably sensed your scrupulosity and tried to steer you away from it, recognizing that communion is the strength you need to overcome your weaknesses, as it is for all of us!
I’m not certain I committed a mortal sin but I could have and I would hate to receive Communion in mortal sin.
Listen to your words, friend! Do you remember the 3 conditions that make a sin mortal?
- Was this “grave” matter? no.
- Did you have knowledge that it was grave matter? no.
- Did you make a decision to do it anyway? no
It seems that you did this spontaneously, without much forethought or weighing whether or not it was serious, and then gave your consent anyway. :shrug:
May God give you peace. :gopray2:
