• Our Blogger

    Fr. Joseph Jenkins

  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Subjective of Sin Hard to Measure

downloadQuestion 270

I understand that committing a mortal sin requires full consent, but how much pressure is needed to make your consent not full? Thanks.

Response

What you ask is very subjective and hard to resolve. It is almost like asking someone, how high is up? The issue is intention and freedom. That must be judged in each case.
