St. Robert Bellarmine –
Notice in the gospels that Jesus is never upset with sinners; he’s only upset with people who don’t think they are sinners. My friends let us be humble in admitting our sinfulness while always being aware of God’s loving mercy and forgiveness. As Jesus said: “I have not come to call the self-righteous, but sinners.” And remember God loves us not because we are good. God loves us because God is good.
