Today while at adoration I was reading a book that states only 25% of Catholics goto mass and 90% have mortal sin on there souls, so it seems not to many Catholics will be going to heaven.November 17, 2009 at 4:59 am #9460
And how on earth would someone get a statistic of how many have committed mortal sins?January 15, 2012 at 7:05 pm #10243
I agree with weather. Both the Catholics,and Protestant churches in England, and the people that attended mass has dropped alarmingly to round about what weather said,and also the lack of priests has declined rapidly. In my parish, one priest has to run three churches which is totally ridiculous. It`s more like a 100% because in a Catholic marriage where sex is concerned that`s where the sin lies,and they don`t evan know it. In the Bible it tells you exactly how many people are going to Heaven. Don`t be alarmed by this,because there are other forms of Heaven. The Meek shall inherit the Earth,and so on.January 16, 2012 at 1:41 am #10245
Well it’s between the priest in the confessional and the individual to determine who is in a state of mortal sin. We must remember that to commit a mortal sin, it must be a serious matter, that one consents to, in full knowledge that it is offensive to God and will to do so. There are millions of Catholics who have not been catechized appropriatly. I’ve met adult Catholics who have been taught by liberal priests and sisters that you don’t have an obligation to go to Mass on Sundays and Holy Days if you don’t feel the need. Some liberal priests have told people that Artificial Birth Control is a matter of their own concience and that thay don’t have to listen to the Papal decree, Humane Vitae. Having heard this from what were supposed to be competent authorities, they don’t follow the teachings of the Church on such important matters with no intent of offending God, so while they sommit a sin that objectivly is a mortal sin, it may be in some cases that their ignorance of the importance and the sinfullness, makes such offences venial.
That does not mean that we should not pray for them and encourage their education about what the Church really teaches. This and other Catholic web pages are one way of doing that.
