Your sins are forgiven

December 10, 2018 6:00 am

“Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply, ‘What are you thinking in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘rise and walk?’ But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins’-he said to the one who was paralyzed, ‘I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.’” (LK 5: 22-24)

First things first; first: “your sins are forgiven,” and second: “rise and walk.” Our Lord knows what is the most important thing; not our health but our strong relationship with God. With Him we receive all we need: “pick up your stretcher, and go home.”

“Behold the king will come, the Lord of the earth, and he himself will lift the yoke of our capacity.” (Gospel Acclamation)
