For me things like murder, rape, robbery, pretty much all property and theft crimes make me personally angry. Taking the Lords name in vein makes me angry. If someone is disrecpectful to their parents that makes me angry. Those are the sins of others that make me angry.
There are a lot of other sins, obviously, but I do not ‘get angry’ when someone does them (I may have left one or more out that hasn’t come to mind when making this post, and may revise my list based on what others have to say).
I recognize all sins as sins but don’t get angry over other people doing them.
As an aside, do people believe/feel that priests ‘get angry’ when others commit sins? I mean they sit in confessional booths and listen to the actual people who have committed certain sins telling them right to their face the sins they have committed. In my experience I haven’t sensed that priests have gotten angry when I have confessed sins. And I have broken commandments and lived a sinful life for many years when I was away from the church, I had morals but they were not in line with Catholic teaching, and as such committed many, many sins. Yet when I went to confession for the first time in 17 years I did not sense the slightest bit of anger from the priest. And I am greatful for that. I feel that the experience brought me closer to God and think that if the priest had gotten angry with me I might have had an opposite reaction, rather than being drawn closer to God and Jesus I might have reacted with fear and withdrew from the Church again. But I felt love and acceptance from the priest and that was just what I needed. I already knew every sin I did was wrong. But because the priest seemed to have the Holy Spirit working through him, drawing me closer to God and Jesus, I am a much better man today because of that experience.
Additionally, does anyone get and remain resentful about sins committed by other people, and if so are these sins committed against you or loved ones, or by peple in general? I used to be very resentful of all the sins my parents and grandmother who raised me committed against me, and it left me filled with hate for several years. I have since come to believe that by forgiving them I personally am in a better space, my heart is not reliving the experience of feeling angry over and over again, and the sins they did were very bad.
In addtion to the sins that you personally get angry about others committing, do you think priests get angry about people committing sins. I would immagine their jobs would be extremely difficult if they got angry at every sin, because they listen to them so much. But I am renewed to my faith and in a learning process and curious as to what others have to say on the matter. And I’d immagine that if they resented people in general for committing sins I don’t understand how they could remain priests.
