“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.”
Imagine the depth of Jesus’ knowledge from the Hebrew Scriptures what would mark His life, including the forgiveness of sins that would come from Him.
How must that have affected His life of ministry and prayer?
How does the promise of being forgiven and possessing eternal life affect your actions and prayer?
Heritage word—“Forgiveness frees and births us into newer, fuller life; it is to live with the ‘mind of Jesus’ and from the perspective of the Cross.”
(Sister Constance Marie, 10th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
