Is masturbation a grave sin?

Question:

I&#039;m 15 years old. I recently confessed sins of masturbation and perverted thoughts. I have spoken to two priests from different parishes, and they gave me this answer: that because of my age, and because of &quot;raging hormones,&quot; I should not worry about it. The Catechism says otherwise. Is masturbation truly a grave sin if you&#039;re 15 years old?<br />

Answer:

Go with the Catechism. It represents what the Church actually teaches. Many teenagers with raging hormones remain chaste. It is quite possible. I suggest that you check out the Pure Love Web site: www.pureloveclub.com
