God’s saving love

By on April 7, 2020

“It is not just one transforming moment of realization and “conversion,” though often it begins that way. It is the habitual knowledge that informs each moment of our lives, not as a paralyzing sense of guilt or shame, but as joyous thankfulness; an ever deepening self-knowledge of one’s dependency and poverty combined with a liberating wonder; the experience of the depth of our sin, but the even greater immensity of God’s saving love.”
― Pope Francis, A Big Heart Open to God: A Conversation with Pope Francis
