I’ve been bothered by a recent question in the Ask An Apologist section since I read it where a sin I personally thought was barely venial was actually perhaps mortal.
The question was about disrespecting parents and I thought that would mean serious things like betraying them, hurting them, fighting using offensive or hurtful words or deliberately saying bad things about your parents to others,
But the question seemed to suggest that interrupting a parent whilst they’re speaking is mortal which is what got me.
If this is mortal then I’m nowhere near a state of grace!
I try to be respectful to my mother as an adult but she disagrees with my faith and often makes things hard for me so I often have little patience with her.
So, my question is, for adults, what things are counted as disrespectful (venial and mortal) ? Please answer since this is bothering me.
