No no that is not what I asked at all in my original post… . I only asked for information about what St Thomas meant, so that I can think about that more and pray and examine my conscience. Because I wanted to use what he wrote but I don’t understand it.
Specifically I’m referring to this part: newadvent.org/summa/3033.htm There’s a part where he describes when it’s a mortal vs when it’s a venial sin. That’s the part I dont’ understand. My intention for making this thread was to ask about his teaching on the matter.
OK. I’ll play, I don’t like to tell others what is or is not “mortal or venial” But you could possibly have grave matter here, you could not. :shrug: Best your own conscience comes to the conclusion. Or you could wait until you have a chance to talk to your spiritual director. But an examination of conscience is not a good tool if it amounts to a consensus of strangers on the internet…:shrug:
I agree… yet that is not what I was getting at
