=redredsox;7390954]I went to confession tonight and during, I remembered that I looked at another girl’s answers on a test. I did not cheat, just look. I also did not confess it.
Looking back, I probably should have just to be on the safe side. Should I back go to confession tomorrow? I don’t want to receive the body and blood in a state of mortal sin.
Not done, … no sin in this case. It would have been a sin if you did cheat. But this is NOT serious matter unless an issue like being able to graduate or not or other circumstances raises the lvel of importane significantly. So it would not have been a Mortal sin; and therefore in an absolute sense did not HAVE to be confessed.
My friend, God and I appreciate your candor, BUT in order for anything to be a Mortal sin it must always and everytime meet these conditions:
**Serious Matter **like abortion, contraceptive sex, sex outside marrige, murder, ruinging the good name of another, EXtreme jealousy, missing Sunday or holyday Mass intentioanlly,stealing a signifiant amout of money or something of GREAT value, EXtrerme anger, any SEROUS lack of charity and the like.
Then one must be aware of this before comiting the act. Guessing you committed a serious sin of a non-serious matter is NOTa Mortal sin. It MUST BE GRAVE MATTER.
Then One one MUST FREELY wish to commit the act anyway.
If your in doubt, it’s NOTa Mortal sin, BUT do discuss he isue with yor Confessor so next tim you’ll know for sure.
God’s continud Blessings,
