Hello! I am a striving catholic teenaged male about to graduate high school, and I have a few questions about my faith. I’d appreciate the forum’s input…
I recently returned from a weekend religious camp. Over the past few years I have habitually struggled with the so called “teenager sins”. I came home from the camp with a new zeal not to commit them anymore, unfortunately the temptations are coming back bigger than ever. Any thoughts on how to deal?
There is a boy at my church who is a huge gossip and problem. He has caused many problems within the youth group to the point where many people refuse to speak to one another. The youth minister is aware of what the boy does but does little to stop it. The parish priests are under the boy’s “spell.” What can I do In this situation? It really is getting very hard to be holy in my church as a result of the culture of gossip and judgment.
Is looking at non-pornographic pictures a mortal sin (ie swimsuit pictures) provided no other sexual sin is committed in the process?
Is it appropriate to be “crushing” on a girl that is in a relationship?
I’m not sure if this is the right section of the forum for this. I’m sorry if it is not.
