The readings today all point out the crucial need to repent of our sins. It’s one of those teachings that we all acknowledge yet find hard at times to carry out. May we call upon the Lord for the grace we need to honestly admit our faults and seek God’s forgiveness.
Jesus refers to the Book of Jonah as he speaks to the people about the need for repentance. We, too, have the opportunity every day to repent and call upon the Lord for the grace we need to follow as his disciples.
