QUESTION: are gossip and backbiting a mortal sin?

ANSWER: Gossip is, unfortunately, a very common sin that contradicts love for one’s neighbor, since love seeks the good of a neighbor, while gossip has a different purpose – to denigrate and defame the other. It is also a sin against justice, and therefore repentance for it requires its reparation.
