Friends of the Rosary:
In yesterday’s main reading of the Gospel (Mt 9:1-8), Lord Jesus healed a paralytic and forgave his sins. The scribes, harboring evil thoughts, went against Jesus.
Christ wants to open a better life to us by liberating us from the slavery of sin.
God knows our potential and wants us wise and joyful.
Sin is our rejection to live according to God’s purpose and will.
Sin paralyzes us. We become unable to move.
After saying to the paralytic that his sins were forgiven, Jesus said, “Rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.”
As Bishop Barron wrote, ”First comes the forgiveness of sins, and that is a liberating power in us. Now I can live for the future.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
To Jesus through Mary!
