Venial Sin

A less serious matter
Does not observe moral law
Disobeys the moral law in a grave matter
Without full knowledge

Without complete consent
While he is in the flesh
Man cannot help
Have at least light sins

But do not despise these sins
Which is called “light”
When you take them for light 
Weigh them
Tremble when you count them
What then is our hope?

Above all

(CCC 1863)
