Arrow Question / Issue:

"Other than the 10 Commandments, what other sins are considered mortal?"

 

Arrow Answer / Resources:

[click link(s) below, as applicable]

There are numerous sins not specifically listed in the Ten Commandments that may be considered mortal. While it wouldn't be possible to list them all here, keep in mind that mortal sins would involve grave matter. Mortal sins can be committed by actions, and even by desire or omission. Some 'popular' sins today which involve grave matter include fornication, abortion, contraception, divorce/'remarriage', and homosexual activities. Also, please keep in mind that the Ten Commandments may be 'broader' than they initially appear (e.g. the Second Commandment forbids cursing, the Fifth Commandment requires that we take proper care of our health, the Eighth Commandment forbids rash judgments, etc.). As the Baltimore Catechism states...

"The commandments forbid not only whatever violates them, but also whatever may lead to their violation."

You may find the following resources helpful...

* Sin & Vice: Q & A (includes conditions necessary for a sin to be mortal, sins 'crying out to heaven', deadly sins, sins against the Holy Spirit, ways one can be an accessory to others' sins, etc.)

* Sin (Topic Page)

* Precepts of the Church (violations of these precepts may be considered grave)

* Selections From the Baltimore Catechism

Also, various resources designed to help people prepare for Confession may list certain mortal sins (although certain 'sin list' materials may not be recommended for scrupulous persons). You might consider an online search for such materials if they would prove useful in your particular case.

If there are specific sins you have questions about, it may be best to speak with a good priest as he should be able to help you determine whether they would be considered mortal sins or not.

Lastly, please remember that the Church has the power to forgive all sins for those who are truly sorry, no matter how grave the sins in question and no matter how many times they are committed. For more information, please try here.
