Hello - would anyone have some lists of common but hard-to-accept and/or less-talked-about mortal sins/grave matter? As part of a new year, I am hoping to do a self-audit to see where I am lacking. I would say examples of grave matter that are commonly known are listed the Ten Commandments (at a high level), like: adultery, theft, taking the Lord’s Name in Vain, coveting, idolatry. Examples that I have found of the lesser-known or harder-to-accept areas of grave matter may be the following: masturbation, working on a Holy Day of Obligation (which follows the same rules as Sundays), being a Freemason, supporting Gay marriage, participating in office gossip that causes someone to lose reputation in their work.
Regarding the list(s): please sensor out what seem to be venial or scrupulous matter. Right now, I’m just looking for serious, grave matter.
One request: please don’t use this thread to debate the items on lists provided - rather create a new thread with a link if needed to discuss any one of these in greater detail. I would love to read the debates - but don’t want to sidetrack this thread from gathering a full list together.
Thank you in advance for your research!
