Damaging Effects of Sin
What can often be forgotten is that evil actions have damaging effects not only for us, but for others. More than that, we see in everyday life that it can be the case that this damage can last for generations. While it is not the case that we are responsible for the failings of others, the effects of the evil actions can cause us and others to become broken, and that brokenness can last for a long time. That is why we need to seek the healing that only Jesus can provide, and to celebrate often the sacrament of confessions.
