Please correct me if I'm wrong, what changes the nature of an impure thought are...Incest, Homosexuality, Pedophilia and bestiality? Are those right? Or only if I really desire it??...Is it an assurance that as long as I've only thought about it for a few seconds then STOPPED..then it isn't mortal? Can dwelling occur in a few seconds? What if the intent was impure to start with but then stopped it?

Thank you! I'm sorry if these sound scrupulous once again, but it's really an honest question.. I really don't know. Not out of scruples. God Bless!
You never have to confess anything wherein you would tell the priest, "I don't know" or "I'm not sure." In fact, to do so would do more harm than good, because you would be feeding your scruples.

Some more advice:

- Bookmark this page and read it when you have the time.

http://www.saintaquinas.com/mortal_sin.html

This page outlines clear and exact mortal sins. It's not a complete list, but it's a very good one to follow. See how easy they would be to spot at first glance, with no mental hair-splitting? Could you imagine telling your priest, "I think I murdered that person, but I don't know," or, "I think I might have committed adultery, but I don't know"? Of course not. Because mortal sins, by their very nature, are both clear and certain. You are not obligated to confess anything you are not absolutely sure you committed.

- If this picture captivates you like it does me, you are allowed to print it out and frame it in your home.

This is an artist's rendition of Our Lord as He appeared to the stigmatic and mystic, Rhoda Wise. Rhoda's cause for canonization is being considered by the Church. I emailed the Rhoda Wise House a while back and they said I was welcome to have the picture as long as it was not copied or reproduced. I asked them, to double check, if printing and framing was the same as copying. They said no. Look into those eyes of love and know that you are safe as long as you repent and confess known mortal sins and stay in a state of sanctifying grace. Look at the wounds of the God who died for you. Look at the face of the God of love and mercy, the God who wants you to be with Him in Heaven even more than you do.

More information on Rhoda Wise can be found here:

- Read and listen to the resources I posted on the first page of this thread when you have the time.

- Take a few deep breaths. This is Easter Sunday. Our Lord is risen! Alleluia! Rest in His peace the best you can. God bless you. :)
