Day 34 takes on sin

Day #34: Kinds of sin...
Is original sin the only kind of sin? Original sin is not the only kind of sin; there is another kind, called actual sin, which we ourselves commit.

Amen, amen, I say to you that whosoever commiteth sin is the servant of sin. (John 8:34)

What is actual sin? Actual sin is any willful thought, desire, word, action, or omission forbidden by the law of God.

How many kinds of actual sin are there? There are two kinds of actual sin: mortal sin and venial sin.

Further reading: CCC 1846-1853
