I posted a previous thread about going to confession and confessing sins that I left out in a previous confession with the same priest (sins I didn’t think were mortal so didnt say them). Anyway, I went today and confessed the ones I had left out and he said that if only I purposely left them out for a reason but also said that they weren’t mortal. So I didn’t confess all my sins from that previous confession.
He asked if I wanted to confess sins from after that confession I had previously. I mentioned about a bad thought I had before in the past , and again I had it again after that confession so I told him about it. Then I asked when does it become mortal, and asked along the lines of ‘did u want that to happen?’ And I said ‘no.’ He continued talking, but then I was thinking what if I did want that to happen so I told him that ‘i don’t know’ if I do or not.
My question is, what if I have a bad thought about wanting somethin bad to happen to someone. Although I don’t dwell on the thought, what if I really mean it? Is that a mortal sin? I guess I don’t even know if I did truly mean the thought I had , but right when the priest asked I said ‘no’ . But then told him ‘i don’t know’ bc I didn’t want to lie in the confession. Hope this makes sense. I do struggle with being scrupulous and bad thoughts randomly.
