    Masturbation is defined by the Church as a serious sin. There are some mitigating factors, but celibacy is not mentioned as one of them.

    IF YOU CANNOT HELP IT, THEN IT IS ONLY A VENIAL SIN, BUT IF YOU DONT STOP IT USING THE GRACE GOD GIVES YOU TO DO SO, IT TURNS INTO MORTAL SINS BECAUSE OF THE HOLDING ON TO THE IMPURE ACTS THAT YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN DOING IT. THE 6TH COMMANDMENT, THOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, COVERS ALL IMPURE ACTS NOT JUST ADULTERY, BUT PLEASE READ THIS>>>>

    YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS, BUT YOU ARE PLEASING GOD VERY MUCH HERE, WHY? BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE GOOD JUST FOR HIM. WHEN ANYONE ATTEMPTS A REAL DESIRE AT BEING GOOD THE EVIL ONE WORKS HARDER THAN EVER TO PERSUADE YOU TO FORGET IT, AT FIRST THE DESIRES TO DO BAD SEEMS REALLY STRONG, BUT GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE. DONT EVER THINK ABOUT IT IF YOU CAN HELP IT. REMEMBER JESUS WHEN HE WAS CARRYING HIS CROSS, HE FELL THREE TIMES, BUT GOT RIGHT BACK UP IN GREAT PAIN AND MOVED FORWARD JUST FOR LOVE OF YOU AND I. HE WAS SHOWING US AND EXAMPLE THAT IF WE SIN, GET RIGHT BACK UP AND RETURN TO HIM IMMEDIATELY FOR FORGIVENESS AND WHEN YOU ARE SINCERE, HE WILL FORGIVE YOU AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO CONQUER YOUR SINS. THERE ARE NO AMOUNT OF SINS GREATER THAN THE LORDS MERCY. BUT YOU MUST RETURN TO HIM ASAP IF YOU DONT SOON OR LATER YOU WILL NOT COME BACK TO HIM AT ALL. GOD KNOWS WHEN YOU ARE REALLY TRYING OR NOT AND SO DO YOU! YOU MAY GET THOUGHTS LIKE I AM A HYPOCRITE AT FIRST BUT PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT EITHER, IT IS FROM THE EVIL ONE. JESUS SAID "THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, I SHALL MAKE THEM WHITE AS SNOW"

    JUST BE HONEST WITH GOD AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT YOU WILL BE FREE FROM SINS, BUT THE MAIN STRENGTH FROM SIN COMES FROM HOLY COMMUNION, AND SECRET PRAYER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. YOU WILL NOT ONLY GROW IN STRENGTH WITH SINS BUT YOU WILL TURN AND LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD. IF YOU CAN GO TO THE PRIVACY OF YOUR BEDROOM AND KNEEL BEFORE HIM AND TELL HIM YOU WANT TO START FRESH AND NEED HIS HELP. HE WILL POUR ON HIS GRACE OUT OF LOVE FOR YOU AND MAKE YOU STRONGER THAN YOU EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE, THIS IS NOT DONE OVER NIGHT, BE PATIENT AND TRUST THE LORD TO PULL YOU OUT OF YOUR SLUMP.

    I WILL OFFER UP THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS FROM NOW ON, JUST FOR YOU.

    NOTE ALWAYS REMEMBER A SEXUAL THOUGHT OR THOUGHTS IS NOT SINNING, A THOUGHT IS NEVER A SIN, ITS WHEN YOU EMBRACE IT AND GIVE INTO YOUR URGES THAT IS THE SIN, BUT JESUS KNOWS OUR WEAKNESS'S BETTER THAN WE DO, JUST DO AS RECOMMENDED AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU WILL BE IN THE LORDS SECRET ARMY OF HIS FAITHFUL. AMONG TRUE CHRISTIANS WHO WANT ONLY TO PLEASE GOD OUR FATHER.

    REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAID, IF YOU LET YOURSELF LUST AFTER A PERSON IN YOUR MIND, YOU HAVE ALREADY COMMITTED THE SIN.

    The Catholic Church recognises all masturbation as a sin. It does not make a difference whether or not the person who commits it is living celibately.

    "Both the Magisterium of the Church, in the course of a constant tradition, and the moral sense of the faithful have been in no doubt and have firmly maintained that masturbation is an intrinsically and gravely disordered action." [Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 2352]

    definitions of what Catholics say is not the definitions of what Jesus says. i heard the word transgression, and there is a difference between what people do as sin and what they do as errors.

    Yes, of course, but it is an even greater sin to discuss it in a public forum where personal faults are stored up rather than treasures.

    Masturbation is not possible since we are not bodies.  Forgiveness cummms when we forgive ourselves instead of spreading disease by blaming others for our guilt which does not exist anyway.
