But as a physician, I want to let you know there is something infinitely worse than cancer or any other physical ailment one may have. Unfortunately, many today either are in denial of this or are unaware of it, but this is reality. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 1849-1850) states: Sin is an offense against reason, truth and right conscience; it is failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods.
Grave sin causes death to the soul and unaddressed, one will endure eternal consequences. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity.
It is essential to humanity to realize that sin is infinitely deadlier than any cancer.
Sadly, all of us in some way are plagued by sin because of our fallen human nature, but, as with cancer, we need to expediently make the diagnosis and start the treatments to prevent it from festering, and worse, metastasizing.
This grace we receive in the Sacrament not only enables us to enter heaven but also strengthens us as we continue to battle temptations and the inclination to sin.
We must also acknowledge and repent for any venial sins we commit.
Hell is an eternal separation from God, and as such, a state of eternal unhappiness, sorrow, unfulfillment, and the absence of love.
We are to convert our hearts and become one of His faithful, obedient disciples.We can do this by listening to the Church who gives us guidance on how to win this fight.She tells us we must pray regularly and receive the Sacraments frequently.If we commit mortal sin, which is any grave act of disobedience freely committed, we must go to the Sacrament of Confession as soon as possible.
This Sacrament restores us to communion with Christ and His Church, as well as infuses grace (the divine life in our soul) that was lost in the act of mortal sin.We all recognize that if we have cancer, making this diagnosis is of the utmost urgency.
