Good evening everyone, presuming that it’s night time where ever you guys are, I wanted to inquire about getting some help finding some passages to help support these two teachings of the Church:
- There are venial and mortal sins; there are different degrees of sins.
- That the second commandment encompasses Mother Mary, the saints, or anything sacred.
I ask about the first one because I anticipate being presented a question like that, if ever I have to defend the validity of the sacrament of reconciliation. The second one is just a personal question of mine. Overall, I’d just like to be ready to give an answer to both topics if the conversation ever comes up.
Thanks and God bless
