Help me I am confused with mortal sin.
I know that the church has criteria on mortal sin.
But I am confused about the grave matter.
For example (just an example)
Ben is sleeping, then her sister Jenny decides to pinch her brother. Ben wakes up, and he is offended and proceeds to hit her sister, and is hurt. When he realizes that what he is doing is wrong he immediately stops.
Is Ben guilty of mortal sin?
why and why not?
