Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 3 – 8 The Gravity of Sin (1862-1876) by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

CCC Artwork for podcast Section 31862-1876. Fr Guy discusses the difference between mortal and venial, or less serious, sins. He considers the concept of the ‘fundamental option’ and shows how it is contrary to the teaching of the Church, although aspects of it bear close resemblance to what we believe which is its danger. Vices can be classified according to the virtues they oppose. The traditional seven capital sins and a more recent list of ‘modern’ sins from the Vatican. The four sins which ‘cry to the Lord for vengeance’.

Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 3 – 6 Mercy and Sin (1846-1853) by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

CCC Artwork for podcast Section 31846-1853. The Gospel is the revelation in Jesus Christ of God’s mercy to sinners, however to receive God’s mercy we must admit our faults. 1 Jn 1:8-9: If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’
Fr Guy considers our propensity to sin in relation to our prior assurance of God’s mercy in Jesus Christ.
