Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Lent ‘a’

We all are sinners, there is no exception. But the good news is that if we seek the mercy of God, we will be forgiven. That’s the only thing we need to do -- look for Christ and ask Him to forgive us our trespasses. The only exception comes from ourselves: there is no forgiveness for the person who thinks that he or she does not need God’s mercy, and lives with pride, never approaching our Merciful God. Jesus is very clear. If you ask for forgiveness, if you are sorry for your sins, then you will be forgiven. However, if you reject Christ, you may never be forgiven. “Jesus said to the Pharisees: I am going away and you will look for me, but you will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come." Jesus addressed these words to those who rejected him, who were too proud to admit their mistakes and their need for conversion. That’s why Jesus said “Where I am going you cannot come.” However, you will be able to go where Jesus is if you are humble enough to say: ‘I am sorry, I was wrong, please forgive me Lord.’
