3rd Sunday of Lent, C, 2016
How would you describe yourself? Think for a moment (pause about 15 seconds).
How many of us would describe ourselves as did Pope Francis when asked the same question: “I am a sinner.”
Well, of course, we know we’ve all made mistakes, hurt others, and ignored people’s legitimate needs. In other words, in these or in other ways, we all sinned. But to admit it freely and humbly, to say that defines who we are, that’s another thing completely.
