Summary: God says, “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.” By God’s grace, big sinners can become friends of God. St. Paul says, “Work out your own salvation in fear and trembling.” No one can say “I will go to heaven – I’m sure about it.” We will be saved in hope. Every year in Lent there is a new opportunity to change, to repent. The Catholic Church seems to be the only voice that speaks against many things that this world accepts so easily. Let us pray that we may transform our hearts, believe in God’s hope, and to go into the world to preach this Gospel with courage.
