Forgiveness Humility Mercy Scandal Sin

Sin can lead to corruption

By on January 28, 2021

The repentant sinner, who sins again and again because of his weakness will find forgiveness if he acknowledges his need for mercy. The corrupt man is the one who sins but does not repent, and it is this double life that is scandalous. The corrupt man does not know humility. Sin can lead to corruption, limit one’s capacity for love and create a false sense of self-sufficiency. One may be a great sinner and never fall into corruption. The corrupt man hides what he considers his true treasure, but which really makes him a slave and masks his vice with good manners, always managing to keep up appearances.

During the Season of #Lent, the Holy Spirit drives us too, like Jesus, into the desert (Mk 1:12-15). It is not a physical place, but rather an existential dimension in which we can be silent and listen to the word of God, so that a true conversion might be effected in us.
