Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – What is Sin?
Saint Augustine described sin as “a word, an act, or a desire contrary to the eternal Law.” We can distinguish sins according to their variety or gravity. The two most common categories of sin are mortal sins and venial sins. Mortal sin destroys charity, deprives us of sanctifying grace, and can be forgiven in the Sacrament of Reconciliation (more on this next week). Sin is present in all of our lives. Fortunately, God is infinite mercy. When is the last time you undertook a thorough examination of conscience?
