Recently, someone said something along the lines of “hardly anyone, even saints, goes more than a year without committing a mortal sin”. Is that true?
Maybe the good sisters at my elementary school just over emphasized how bad mortal sins are, but I always thought they were sort of hard to commit (at least all the ones not related to violating chastity of one’s state in life/ missing a day of obligation) because you basically have to kill someone or steal a lot of money or leave the Church.
Recently though, I’m thinking that I might think some stuff is venial that’s actually mortal… where is the line drawn? (Examples would be nice, as my reading the Catechism hasn’t made it very much clearer).
Also, can a sin of omission be a mortal sin? In what sort of situation?
