  • So sometimes when I am stressed out and not thinking much I say a blasphemy to myself under my breath. I always feel bad right afterwards but I still said it. Do you think that is a mortal sin? I plan to confess it anyway but I was just wondering what you think.

  • Yes, it is a mortal sin.
    It is also a very bad habit, which you would realize too late if you said it as your last words while you were departing this life.

    RESPECT HIS HOLY NAME

    "THOU SHALT NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN, FOR THE LORD SHALL NOT LEAVE UNPUNISHED HIM WHO TAKES HIS NAME IN VAIN" (EX. 20:7)

    From the Holy Bible: "A man that sweareth much shall be filled with iniquity (sin) and a scourge shall not depart from his house." (Eccl. 23:12)

    St. John Vianney, the holy priest of Ars: "God gave men only ten commandments and one of the ten has for its sole object the reverence due to His Name." He used to say that it was an astounding miracle that people who used His Name in vain were not struck dead on the spot. But he warned them, "If the sin of blasphemy is rampant in your home, it will surely perish."

    Often His Holy Name is used as an expression of speech, for instance: "My God!" with no real thought of God or calling upon Him. Let us always strive to love and honor the Holy Name of God, using His Name only in prayer and adoration and thanksgiving.

    Our Lord revealed to Sr. Marie de Saint-Pierre, a French Carmelite Nun, the need for mankind to make reparation for the terrible sin of blasphemy. He told her: "Oh if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once, 'Admirable is the Name of God' in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy!" Please repeat this holy phrase often and distribute these cards to appease God's wrath toward our sinful nation.
