I am kind of scrupulous but today after coming out of Mass(during Mass I had been battling with obsessive temptation to evil thoughts) and during mass I asked myself if I hated Satan, I guess I knew we aren’t supposed to hate anyone. After Mass I said in my head that I do hate him.
So now I’m worried cause I know deliberate hatred can be a mortal sin, so now I am worried if I can go to mass and receive before I can go to confession since I said I hated someone?
Part of me says it’s the devil and he is already in Hell so hating him is different than if I hated a person here on Earth. Also I tried to reassure myself that this is not a mortal sin since in the St. Michael prayer we say “cast into hell Satan” and if I said that about anyone else that would be a mortal sin(since wshing hell upon one is sinful) but if we’re allowed to say that phrase in the St. Michael prayer we should be allowed to hate satan?
