In prayer today, Jesus allowed me to experience in a very deep and personal way, how my uncharitable acts deepen His wounds even more. This was something I knew on an intellectual basis–and so of course, I am always sorry for my sins–but after what just happened, I feel a sense of sorrow and remorse for my failures unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. What I now know, is that each one of my sins, quite literally, make His wounds more painful and make Him suffer more.
Does my experience in any way contradict Church teaching? I am a convert, so although I think I have all the concepts, sometimes I realize that I have missed some of the fine details that those with 12 years of religious education have.
