Journey through Lent 2019 at St. Anthony's
REFLECTIONS FROM THE PEWS
March 15, 2019

We all sin, have free will, and all have a choice to do reconciliation. During lent is really time to reflect on what sin really is.

We have a choice to commit a sin and follow evil.  There are people who sin without asking for forgiveness. They choose to go against the commandments. They hate and do wrong.

On the other hand, we have the choice to follow God and to do good. We can ask for forgiveness. We know we all sin.  Those who follow God, take in responsibilities for their own sins.  There is where reconciliation comes in. 

This is what Lent is about. Fasting, focusing on Jesus, and the forgiveness of sins. That is what today's verses talk about.
