PODCAST | I Have Sinned

“I will get up and go back to my father and say to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants’” (Luke 15:18-19).

While making use of the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Fr. Peter Armenio causes the observer to stop and think about the reason why a soul is moved to repentance. Fr. Peter explains that it is the devout contemplation of the goodness of God and the returning loving gaze of Our Lord upon our souls that elicits a desire for profound repentance and thus to have a conversion of heart.

If we take time to really consider our actions and are honest with ourselves and with God, we can receive freedom from sin, the healing that God is offering through Jesus Christ through the priest in confession.
