My current question pertains to Justification and the loss thereof, as a result of mortal sin. I know the definition of “mortal sin” via the Catechism, but not what it looks like. I imagine “adultery” is a mortal sin, but is “lust”? Jesus spoke of that in Matt 5:28. Any feedback?
My Catholic uncle claims to be a serious about his faith, teaches RCIA etc. But he told me that “mortal sins” are only the REALLY BAD sins, and therefore confession is rare. I would be inclined to think that mortal and venial sins would be cause for frequent confession.
Thanks for your help.
