Sin is real. It has a power over us so much so that we need rescuing from it. Jesus has come to save us from our sin
In order to allow Jesus to save us we need to make an act of faith and an act of repentance.
God is not trying to keep an archive of all of our weaknesses and failure. God can truly forgive and forget. He wants to erase the record. He longs for us to live from a place of feeling relieved, unburdened, and at peace - to know that whatever it is that we have done we have been set free.
Homily begins at 23:50.
