As stated in the
Catechism of Pope St. Pius X... (emphasis added)
injury does mortal sin do the soul?
A. (1) Mortal
sin deprives the soul of grace and of the friendship of God; (2) It makes it
lose Heaven; (3) It deprives it of merits already acquired, and renders it
incapable of acquiring new merits; (4) It makes it the slave of the devil; (5)
It makes it deserve hell as well as the chastisements of this life. [Note:
Items above (e.g. deprivation of grace and God's friendship, loss of heaven &
merits, slavery, etc.) refer to unrepented mortal sin.]
Q. What harm
does venial sin do the soul?
A. Venial sin:
(1) Weakens and chills charity in us; (2) Disposes us to mortal sin; (3) Renders
us deserving of great temporal punishments both in this world and in the next.
