I went to Catholic school all my life. I remember one particular nun when I was in grade school giving us an example. Say I want to steal Jane’s purse which she has left unattended upstairs in an empty classroom. I go upstairs to do the deed, but there is a teacher in the classroom and I do not get to steal the purse. Have I committed a sin, even though I didn’t actually steal the purse? According to my teacher, she says yes I did. The only thing that stopped me was the opportunity, not the desire not to commit the crime.
Did you mean to answer me? Because that was my point.
