Q: Can all mortal sins be forgiven?


A: Yes, if you are truly sorry for them and do everything necessary for forgiveness.

      "If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all iniquity" [1st John 1,9]

Q: If you do something wrong, but don't know it is wrong, are you guilty of sin?

A: No, if your ignorance or memory lapse is not your fault.
