To call sinners.

July 2, 2021 3:00 am

“Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” (MT 9: 12-13)

Maybe, this is one of the installed programs from our childhood—we need to be right and polite to have others’ attention; the condition to be accepted and rewarded. Our Lord “didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners.” He came to express His Father’s love to every creature, to everyone, because when we are unconditionally loved, we can fully answer to our identity. Hurt people—hurt people, loved people—love people.

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