I was reading a meditation on sinners and it said something about when we commit mortal sin, we lose all value for eternity and all past graces and merits are lost. It did say as long as we live without contrition adn confession. This meditation confused me so I would like clarification.
Does this mean if we commit mortal sin that even after sacramental confession and contrition that we have lost all graces and merts from before we sin? Does that mean, for example if I had done so many good things and obtained many graces, merits and all that good stuff that if I commit one mortal sin and later confessed it then, well, died a day later, would that mean God will not honor those good works, graces and merits that I had done prior to me commiting the mortal sin?
I am a bit concerned. I would love to hear some input everyone especially from some priests and nuns out there.
