Fr. Norman July Catechesis “Your sins are forgiven”

Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the keys of restorative healing and synergy with God with words like these: “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you.” Saint John Chrysostom helped to prove it in his treatise that demonstrated if a man doesn’t suffer injury by his own hand then nothing or no one can harm him. In a time where so many derive self-worth from how they’re perceived by strangers on social media, while surveys show church attendance decreasing – well before the pandemic – Saint John’s words have never been more relevant and needed in order to bring a portion of God’s people back to Him in soul-saving humility.
