I'm in BIG trouble . . .

I was checking some of the ads in the boxes to the left of my posts. They are random and chosen (I think) by keywords in my posts. I do not choose them.

I read and copied the following information when I visited one of them by typing in the address. I am not allowed to click on them. The following is from: most holy family monastery dot com. I have to give them credit or I can't copy it. The comments in blue are mine.

"All who die in mortal sin will go to Hell (Is there a gray area here?)

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Letentur coeli,” Sess. 6, July 6, 1439, ex cathedra: “We define also that… the souls of those who depart this life in actual mortal sin, or in original sin alone, go straightaway to Hell, but undergo punishments of different kinds.”
( Could I have some kind of advanced maybe a buzzer goes off every time I'm about to commit a sin...a two second warning perhaps or maybe an " electric sin collar" that goes around my neck and shocks me into goodness? Oh, and can you give us a hint about those punishments of a different kind? I'd like to be prepared. )

Catholics must also know that all who die in mortal sin will go to Hell forever. (I want proof from someone who's already been there.) Mortal sins include: murder, (Does that include killing ants and spiders?) fornication (i.e. sexual acts outside of marriage or acts leading up to sex outside of marriage) (What about, "Just the tip?") , lying (How about little white lies?) drunkenness, (Does it count if it was before I turned 21?) consenting to impure thoughts,(Even if it was with Donny Osmond?) masturbation,(I thought you only grew hair on your palms for that!) looking at pornography, ( Okay, gotcha...I will not renew my lifetime subscription to Playgirl when it comes up.) adultery (No thank you.) cheating, (At cards?) taking God’s name in vain,(I'm Sorry.) birth control (NFP) or artificial contraception, (Guilty, I'm no Mother Hubbard.)assisting the propagation of heresy(What?) funding heretics,(Huh?) dishonoring the Sabbath (Exactly what does that mean?)breaking the commandments, (Wouldn't that mean all of the above?)etc.(etc.? This is the one that has me the most worried! It leaves the door wide open for speculation and my vivid imagination to take over.) If someone were to commit a mortal sin and then go to Confession, he must have the firm resolution never to commit the sin again. (My intentions were always good.) This is called the firm purpose of amendment. (Thank you for the clarification.) If a person commits a mortal sin and doesn't have the firm purpose of amendment when he goes to Confession, he commits a sacrilege and the Confession is invalid. (In other words...damned if you do...damned if you don't.) Most souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh. (Well, when you put it that way...) Those who are committing sins of the flesh need to stop immediately if they don’t want to perish forever in the fires of Hell. " (Sins of the flesh...could you be more specific?)

I'm going to have nightmares tonight.
