Forgiveness of Sins

St George Preca

Let us reflect and see our Lord healing a paralysed man, after telling him "Your sins are forgiven", bidding him to rise, take up his bed and go home. Jesus did this to show the scribes and the Pharisees that he had power on earth to forgive sins.

The men who had put the paralysed man down through the roof, and all those present were filled with awe and were astonished when they saw how the paralysed man was healed.

St George Preca

Meditate on the heart of Jesus in its confirmed mission of healing.

  • Do you know that Jesus confer the power of forgiving sins to the ministers of the Catholic Church through his apostles?
