This week Jesus is telling us that he didn’t come simply to bring patchwork redemption. He came to renew the whole person.
He didn’t simply come to tack on a few new laws or to add some new religious practices. He came to transform me from within. He told us; “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”
The Sacrament of Reconciliation provides us an opportunity to take another step in that process of transformation. In receiving that sacrament, there comes a point when I must decide whether I want to stay at the surface in my relationship with God, or go much deeper. To get at the attitudes and values from which my actions flow.
Lent is the time for renewal and transformation and a great time to celebrate the sacrament of penance !
