SHAKEN BY THE MEMORY OF YOUR PAST SINS: TIPS TO REGAIN INTERIOR PEACE
At times, some people, even after having been forgiven in the Sacrament of Confession, are haunted by their past grave sins which perturb them and lose interior peace. During these situations, one should examine himself if he has forgiven himself…yes, himself. For in some occasions, we are so hard on ourself forgetting that if God has forgiven us (assuming we have already confessed them), why can’t we forget our self?
One could take advantage of these memories to say an act of sorrow, like, “Lord, have mercy on me! I’m sorry for all my past sins because they have offended Thee! Mother Mary, please help me!”
With this short prayer, one could easily turn the tide, converting the burden of these memories into prayer, and thus an occasion to grow closer to God through Our Lady.
