The Weight of Sin

I just finished teaching that large altar piece at La Salle des Povres that was created during the early Renaissance. There are no demons in this depiction of the final judgment. Instead, the condemned fall into Hell by the sheer weight of sin on their conscience. Remove the concept of sin from the scenario, and it would be a good description of how I feel today. And the part that makes me feel worse is that I know so many others who feel even worse today because of weightier issues.
