I was wondering about people who have repented for their sins and made reparation but still experience sorrow for their sins in the conscience. For example, if someone stole money from a friend and later confessed it in confession and said the rosary for the friend yet still feels remorse for what they did. Given that the act is still on their conscience would this sorrow be illuminated in the light of the suffering of Christ on the cross?


In your example, the sin and the temporal punishment were both entirely remitted, so it is not on their conscience. Emotion, even the emotion of sorrow, is not necessarily of the conscience.
