One sinner who repents

November 5, 2015 6:00 am

“In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (LK 15: 10)

We are not created to be perfect; we are perfectly created to be like Our Father, “who art in Heaven.” If Our Lord gave us an example of how to pray to His Father and asked—“forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us”—it means that He understands we can fall; we can sin. Our Lord expects from us that we will not stay in this state, but immediately repent. We know our condition: we are sinners, but the ones “who repent.” Always!

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
