I have to be honest, I don’t even know if my sins are mortal or venial sometimes
I think examinations of consciences usualy list mortal sins but sometimes things can be venial, like not all lies are mortal, for example.
but then I’m confused, st. Augustine said that it’s better not to lie even if you would be saving a life, but it seems that type of lie would probably be a venial sin? not that we should make a habit of committing venial sins, I guess.
but it seems like most of the things I do wouldn’t fall under the category of grave matter, or am I just deceiving myself? there are certain saints that make it seems like one small wrong move is mortal sin.
