Can I Sin on Accident?

“If no one gets hurt is it still a sin?” “It was just an accident.”

How can we know if our actions are a sin or just a mistake? Can we be committing sin without knowing it?

Today Fr. Mike details the three elements that must be present for an act to be a sin and he helps us grapple with our own sinfulness and God’s desire for mercy and reconciliation.
