Earlier this week, I did something that could have been a mortal sin. I need to know whether or not it was, because I have no more opportunities to go to Confession today and I am attending All Saint’s Day Mass in 2 hours. I tried to go to Confession the day after committing my possibly mortal sin, but the website of my parish had incorrect times for the Confession.
Okay, so I guess I’ll describe the sin. I have been struggling with masturbation, and I have been pure since my Confession three weeks ago. However, one of the things that really tempts me is a website that sometimes has tempting images on it (Facebook). I deleted the app from my phone, and now I only use it to accept friend requests. However, last time I was accepting one, I looked at an account that I knew would have tempting pictures. Nothing pornographic, just revealing. I did not masturbate and exited after 5 minutes or so. I have heard that “submission to an occasion of sin” can be a mortal sin in itself, does this qualify under that term?
