Hi! This is my first post here, so I apologise in advance for any faux pas’s and, as English is not my first language, for the grammar mistakes and weirdly worded sentences.
I am a recent convert, so the question is reflective of my lack of knowledge (and I am quite embarrassed to be asking), but it keeps bothering me. I failed to put any money into the offertory basket last Sunday, and not because I intended to, but it suddenly felt too awkward to be seen doing it. I know my own tendency to be anxious in social situations, so I had prepared, tried to seize the perfect moment and just do it, but no. Could not do it this time. I have been thinking of it as an example of caring more about other people’s opinion than I care about God. But I am doubting myself and would appreciate any advice, opinions etc regarding the sinfulness of my (in)action.
In what circumstances would you say the line between venial and mortal sin would definitely be crossed?
P.S. I am so sorry, I might try to delete the post later, just because it all sounds so stupid and I am so so embarrassed. Would still appreciate your help.
