Taking Holy Communion after Accidental Profanity
#7
Excerpt, Catechism of Saint Pius X:


Quote:29 Q. What is required for a sin to be mortal? A. For a sin to be mortal three things are required: (1) Grave matter, (2) Full advertence, (3) Perfect consent of the will.
30 Q. When is the matter to be considered grave?
A. The matter is grave when the thing under examination is seriously contrary to the laws of God and His Church.

31 Q. When is there full advertence in sinning?
A. Full advertence in sinning is had when we know perfectly well that we are doing a serious evil.

32 Q. When is perfect consent of the will verified in sinning?
A. Perfect consent of the will is verified in sinning when we deliberately determine to do a thing although we know that thing to be sinful.
Is the remark (1) seriously contrary to the laws of God and His Church, did you (2) know perfectly well when thinking it that you were doing a serious evil, and (3) did you deliberately determine to do it, despite already knowing it was sinful?

If the answer to any of these questions is "No," then it was not a mortal sin.

If you are not certain of the answer:

Quote:80 Q. If a penitent is not certain of having committed a sin must he confess it?

A. If a penitent is not certain of having committed a sin he is not bound to confess it; and if he does confess it, he should add that he is not certain of having committed it.

If you are not certain that you had full advertence or deliberate consent, you are not bound to confess it.
