    Sin often leaves people:

    • A.

      Happy, overwhelmed, joyful

    • B.

      Uneasy, troubled, quilty

    Correct Answer
    B. Uneasy, troubled, quilty
    Explanation
    Sin often leaves people feeling uneasy, troubled, and guilty. When someone engages in sinful behavior, it can create a sense of unease and discomfort within them. They may feel troubled by the consequences of their actions and the impact it has on themselves and others. Additionally, guilt often accompanies sin as individuals recognize the wrongfulness of their behavior and experience remorse for their actions. These negative emotions of uneasiness, trouble, and guilt serve as reminders of the moral and ethical standards that have been violated.

    Venial Sins are mostly forgiven through:

    • A.

      Praying, charity work and communication with God

    • B.

      Ignoring your sin even though you have recognised that you have done wrong

    • C.

      Reconciliation

    Correct Answer
    A. Praying, charity work and communication with God
    Explanation
    The answer is "Praying, charity work and communication with God" because these actions are often seen as ways to seek forgiveness and make amends for venial sins. Praying allows individuals to express remorse and ask for forgiveness, while charity work demonstrates a commitment to helping others and making positive changes. Communication with God, whether through prayer or reflection, allows individuals to reflect on their actions and seek guidance in avoiding future sins. Reconciliation, on the other hand, is typically associated with the forgiveness of mortal sins rather than venial sins.

      Acts of charity

    • B.

      Regurlar prayer

      Reconcilation

    Correct Answer
    C. Reconcilation
    Explanation
    Reconciliation is the process of confessing one's sins to a priest and receiving absolution. In the context of mortal sins, which are grave offenses against God, reconciliation is considered the most effective means of forgiveness. Through the sacrament of reconciliation, individuals acknowledge their sins, express sincere remorse, and receive the assurance of God's forgiveness. Acts of charity and regular prayer are important aspects of the Christian faith, but they are not specifically designated as the primary means of forgiveness for mortal sins.

    The "Act of Contrition" is the same as the "step of Contrition"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the "Act of Contrition" and the "step of Contrition" are not the same thing.

    Which of the following is not an example of Penance?

    • A.

      Praying the lords prayer

    • B.

      Praying two decades of the Rosary

    • C.

      Going shopping with your friends

    • D.

      An act of Kindness

    Correct Answer
    C. Going shopping with your friends
    Explanation
    Going shopping with your friends is not an example of Penance because Penance refers to an act of self-punishment or self-discipline as a form of repentance for one's sins. Praying the Lord's prayer and praying two decades of the Rosary are examples of penance as they involve seeking forgiveness and showing remorse for one's actions. An act of kindness can also be seen as a form of penance as it involves making amends and showing goodwill towards others. However, going shopping with friends does not involve any form of self-punishment or repentance, therefore it is not an example of Penance.
