I’m having trouble identifying my sins. I know that I have committed way too many mortal sins in the past, and I couldn’t count all the venial sins I’ve committed over my life if I tried, but I do care about my spiritual life, do a particular examination of conscience fairly regularly and try to grow in holiness. But for the past few months or maybe even longer I’ve been having trouble identifying even small venial sins.
And I feel that this is ridiculous. I am human. I am a young adult. I feel like if someone else said this to me about themselves I’d think they are fooling themselves, so I’ve turned this around onto myself and I believe that I am simply blind to my own sins. I know where I am likely to stumble, I know my tendencies and faults. I know very well that I’m a wretch and depend on God to not fall into mortal sin.
I’ve prayed and prayed asking God to show me what I can’t see, what I perhaps subconsciously don’t want to see, but I’m still coming up with pretty much nothing. I don’t know what to do, I don’t know how to get over this spiritual blindness.
I can’t grow in holiness if I can’t see the things that need correcting. PLEASE HELP!!
