Forgiveness Sin

The consolation of forgiveness

“He waits. Always. And it is never too late. That’s what he’s like, that’s how he is… he’s a father. A father waiting at the doorway, who sees us when we are still far off, who is moved, and who comes running towards us, embraces us, and kisses us tenderly… Our sin is like a jewel that we present to him to obtain the consolation of forgiveness… Giving a gift of jewels is a noble thing to do, and it is not a defeat by a joyous victory to let God win!”
– Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy
