You can’t receive the Eucharist if you’ve:
1) Missed a weekend or Holy Day Mass without a valid reasonetc. etc. The list is not exhaustive, and any sin that we have meditated on before hand, understood its gravity and still chosen to do it can be a deadly sin.
2) Having sex outside of marriage, with yourself (masturbation) or someone else
3) Desecrated the Eucharist
4) Haven’t been to confession in a year
5) Use artificial birth control – condoms, pills, patches, IUD’s, etc
6) Sponsor or help in any way with an abortion or any destruction of an embryo
9) Lust after someone
10) Pride, Greed, Sloth, Envy
Blogger Note: Numbers 8 through 10 would depend mostly upon the gravity of the sin.
Baltimire CatechismDon’t step out of bounds…and by all means…if you do…get back in bounds through confession! Don’t desecrate the Eucharist and receive it as some sort of prize you’ve earned simply by showing up for Mass!
66. What is mortal sin?A: Mortal sin is a grievous offense against the law of God.
Flee from sins as from the face of a serpent; for if thou comest near them, they will take hold of thee. (Ecclesiasticus 21:2)
67. Why is this sin called mortal?A: This sin is called mortal, or deadly, because it deprives the sinner of sanctifying grace, the supernatural life of the soul.
Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. (Ecclesiasticus 15:18)
1 Corinthians 11:27 Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
