    Catechism of the Catholic Church

    1857 For a sin to be mortal, three conditions must together be met: "Mortal sin is sin whose object is grave matter and which is also committed with full knowledge and deliberate consent."131
    1866 Vices can be classified according to the virtues they oppose, or also be linked to the capital sins which Christian experience has distinguished,
    following StJohn Cassian and StGregory the Great. They are called "capital" because they engender other sins, other vices.138 
    They are prideavariceenvy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth or acedia.

    Sacraments 101: Penance (why we confess)

    O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
    and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell,
    But most of all because they have offended Thee, my God, Who art all good and deserving of all my love.
    I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace,
    to confess my sins,
    to do penance,
    and to amend my life. Amen.
