It has taken me a while to make this posting, I have not spoken to anybody about this yet. A year ago I made my return to the Catholic faith I was born into. It was at the foot of a cross that looks over the city of Salta in Argentina where I was travelling through, There was also a Catholic religious festival happening there where I attended Mass. I had a spiritual experience with God there and finally made my return to my Gods church. I had not strayed to far before I always had a great devotion to Christ but finally my questions and doubts about the Catholic Faith were answered, my return was amazing. After that day sores appeared on my feet but left after a few days. But since then I keep feeling invisible sores. It is not too painful but it happens on both feet most days with no particular pattern, It reminds me to pray. I never wanted stigmatas, I never paid much heed to them but now I am considering it could be from God. I have grown even closer to God over the last year through prayer and Mass. I also have another strange occurence on my left side, it is more painful and has been happening to me over the last 4-5 years sometimes like a piercing of the side. This is one I should probably check out with a doctor. This is not occuring where there is any major body organ but more on the surface or slightly lower. I am not sure if Christ was pierced on the left or the right side but I just wanted to mention this also. God is and has been very active in my life, sometimes I have ignored but found myself heaved back but over the last year I am firmly in Gods hand.
My main question here what should I do, should I accept this as a personal blessing, should I tell people or should I seek spiritual or medical advice. I am not in torment over this, life is quite good for me. I am not obsessing either, but I would love to hear some more views. Even as I am writing this I felt a drop of water on my side, this is a first for me. Please advise me.
Again thanks to this amazing forum for being here.
