In Conversation with God:

It is not enough to remove the arrow from the body… We also have to heal the wound caused by the arrow… after we have received forgiveness for our sins, we have to heal the wound that remains through penance…

… there remains in the Christian a dark area, due to the wound of sin, to the imperfection of love in repentance, to the weakening of spiritual faculties. It is an area in which there still operates an infections source of sin which must always be fought with mortification and penance…

… we must put a lot of love into fulfilling the penance the priest gives us…

CCC #366

 The Church teaches that every spiritual soul is created immediately by God – it is not “produced” by the parents – and also that it is immortal: it does not perish when it separates from the body at death, and it will be reunited with the body at the final Resurrection.
