I was thinking about family today

When i was a kid i had an aunt who appeared very religious.I was afraid of her. She went to church every Sunday, donated to many charities, quoted scriptures off the top of her head.In conversation with other family members I would hear her say " Im a God fearing person" One day I saw her beat my grandmother. Then go into her room and pray with her rosary beads. When I became an adult my mother passed away . I knew she never liked my mother. She came over to the house and was speaking to my father, her brother. She was giving my father advice about sending my baby brother to Catholic school. I interjected into the conversation to my father that mom would never want that. My aunt said in a very nasty tone, " well she's not here is she". I went into a rage grabbed her and slapped her into next week. Not just for disrespecting my mother but also for beating my grandmother when I was a kid, My and abusing my cousins.My father took me off of her She ran out the house calling down evil on me. Years later I paid her a visit. She was ill , dying of cancer. She said to me ," I never hated your mother" Then I said is that an apology? She said yes.I said ok, but did you make peace regarding your mother who you beat? She said yes. I said maybe now you can rest in peace concerning your mom and your orphan neices whom you abused when they were little girls too.She said yes I made peace. I said Im not judging you i love you and Im sorry i attacked you. She forgave me. She died the next week. (. :

1. Wow. Sounds like she went to church, but never absorbed the message.

She knew what she was doing or she wouldn't have felt the need to make peace. Sounds like she carried a heavy burden most of her life.
