WORDS FOR LIFE:  February 28th 2016     

III Sunday of Lent

 

  1. In this morning´s passage, we have read about the Lord´s views on conversion and the consequences of non-conversion: death and eternal condemnation.
  2. But what is “conversion”? If we look for this word, we find its meaning clear in other passages of St.Luke´s Gospel.
  3. It means leaving behind our past sinful life. In Chapter 17, our Lord tells his disciples: ” If your brother offends you, rebuke him and if he is sorry, forgive him. If he offends you seven times in a day but says to you seven times, “I´m sorry”, forgive him.” Therefore, conversion signifies repenting and leaving behind one´s past sinful life.
