These images were intruding into my mind while trying to seek peace and introspection during my prayers and meditation. I found it very disturbing that the one area of my mind was no longer safe from the other areas of my mind. Now that I am coming through the other side of this I am discovering that my sacred place was not being invaded. Rather the stronger portion, the sacred place was annexing these outskirts of my cognition. I was integrating them.
Spiritually the answer is that I was not the victim on the screen being portayed. In my view of faith, Christ Jesus himself who endured every torment we can suffer was being pictured in the gospel. When he is proclaimed through the mass and his holy body and blood are administered in the Blessed Sacrament his all availing sacrifice on my behalf is complete. I receive his holiness in exchange for my ugliness. He bore my shame and I bear his grace.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love and self discipline. (St Paul, 2Timothy 1:7) NIV
