Hello there everyone,
I’ve just come back from Mass, having been to Confession yesterday and having received Communion today. When I got home, I tried to explain to my brother how he should wait with doing certain things we were going to do today until I had prepared for it. He wouldn’t listen and got quite annoying, which resulted in me becoming irritated. Re-stating my point in hope that he would understand, he still continued to just talk at me without really grasping what I meant. Being in that annoyed state, I caught myself calling him an “idiot” for his behaviour.
Since I have just got back from Mass and Communion (which I haven’t received in weeks), I would be really troubled to know that I had just once again mortally sinned. So my question is this: Is it mortal sin to call someone an idiot in an annoyed state of mind? It’s not that I resolved “Right, I’ll call him an idiot now”, but that it just so happened.
Hope that’s clear, thanks.
