I posted this in 2016, but who goes back that far.

 Around the end of Summer 1983, my best friend and I were heading out to Chicago's Lincoln Park by L Train on a Sunday morning to spend the day hanging out and going by the lakefront. I was an agnostic and very anti-Christian at the time, and for some reason I got on the subject of stigmata, and I couldn't stop making jokes about it. This was going on through out the morning and into the afternoon. Finally we're on the train ride back around 5pm, and I turn to my friend and still amazingly finding this ironically funny, I said something to him like "I swear, I absolutely swear I'm not making this up, but I've got sharp pains in both my hands and both my feet. It took a few minutes for me to convince him I really wasn't trying to be funny. I could still walk without difficulty, and on the zero to 10 pain scale, it was about 5 or 6. The pains lasted a few hours and were gone by the time I went to bed, and it was still more than a decade before I returned to the Church.
