Was this mortal

Hello about a week ago I was at my freinds house. He brought out some drinks for the three of us. I am currently a junior in highschool and wandering if I commited mortal sin by drinking. I did not become drunk and drinking did not cause me to do other sins. (Please do not say to talk to your priest because I already know I should, and I know that we should avoid all sin. I just want to know if I’m in the state of grace)

Anonymous people on Internet forums can’t really tell you that.


I meant I was wandering if it was mortal sin to have a few drinks underage with my freinds. Because if it was then I would not be in the state of grace.

There are 3 conditions for mortal sin: grave matter, full knowledge, full consent. If in doubt, confess before receiving Communion. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Did you knowingly break a just law? Yes.
Was it mortal? That’s something you need to form your conscience about. Sounds like you need better friends that encourage you to be Holy.

Would this be grave?
