Thought of the Day

By 12:19 PM

"St. Jerome was lamenting that his wretched and sinful state left him nothing to offer God. The Lord said to him, 'Jerome, give me your sins.'" Have we ever thought that sometimes we hold on to our sins because we feel that we have to do something about them? In doing this, we deny God what is rightfully his, when Jesus took upon himself our sins and nailed them to the cross. Instead of holding on to our sins, we need to continually offer them to Jesus in repentance so that we can receive his reconciling grace in return. He is the garbage master, who takes away our filthy rags and gives us clean clothes.
