When does gossip become a mortal sin?

Question:

When does gossip become grave enough to be considered a mortal sin?<br />

Answer:

Unless the matter under discussion is a common news item, when someone’s gossip negatively alters the opinion another has regarding a third person, one has committed a grave action. If it is done with full knowledge and deliberate consent, the grave action then becomes a mortal sin. Gossip is a far more serious matter than most of us like to consider.
