Two sins: mortal or not?
#1
I did two things and I was wondering if they are mortal:
-I paid attention all through Sunday night Mass but then I lost attention during the consecration of the Body of Christ, but since I'm prone to scrupulosity and want to fix that, I took communion.
-I said that it didn't make sense to me that Saint Joseph has such a big veneration considering we know very little about him from the Bible, which now I know is a silly way to think.

Are those both mortal or is that just scrupulosity talking? I know the rule is "when in doubt it's not mortal," but I feel like it's worth knowing about individual cases.

Sorry to expand the number of scrupulous moral theology questions,

Neither are mortal.

Making threads asking these sorts of questions will only feed your scruples. You have to starve 'em out.

Thanks, that makes sense.

No problem.

Please listen to these two radio programs when you have time, okay? If you take them to heart and follow them diligently, I promise you they will help.

Neither of those are mortal sins.
St Teresa of Avila compared her imagination to a wild horse that needed to be tamed and St Therese of Lisieux slept during teh evening meditation.
