I just wanted to get someone else’s opinion on these two separate situations, are they mortal sins or not?
The other day someone I know received a letter that meant they wouldn’t be receiving finance for something, they didn’t send the letters in on time, it was a stressful day and I said something along the lines of “so lie to them, tell them you sent it in’, and repeated my sentence. Afterwards it occurred to me that this might be committing a mortal sin so I told them I didn’t really want them to lie and they didn’t anyway. All in all, the whole situation would have led to more lies but I don’t know it I committed a mortal sin here I will say I didn’t say it thinking of committing a sin I just didn’t want any more stress.
The second time concerns a dream I had, I woke up and tried to get back to sleep but started thinking about my dream (I don’t’ think it was bad) but it’s hard to explain but the thought changed into something else, I thought I was still trying to remember the dream but I don’t think I had the intention of committing a sin, but the thought changed into a potentially sinful one and caused a reaction that made me open my eyes and immediately wonder where that came from. I feel awful but I don’t know if I was falling back asleep or if I was just dazed out but or if I deliberately thought it but I don’t think I had bad intentions either time.
I’m pretty sad at the possibility that I might have committed a mortal sin and will of course try to get to confession but it’s not possible right now. Do I need to refrain from communion or am I letting my OCD get into my head?
