J.M.J. Is there any hope for me, what with all my sins?
"But when the time had fully come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father!' So through God you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son then an heir." (The Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians 4:4-7)
Daily, we beg God to forgive our sins. How delighted He must be when we ask Him for pardon with such sorrow and humility!
Today, we enter into the final period--the last week--of Advent. The "O Antiphons" are used as the Verse to the Alleluia during the Holy Mass and as the Antiphon to the Magnificat during Vespers.
O Mary, Mother of Divine Grace, pray for us.
