From a Creighton Student's Perspective

How often do we find ourselves turning away from God? Given the nature of our human hearts, we seem to constantly be oscillating between God’s will and our own selfish desires. Just as St. Paul struggled, so are we caught in a never ending battle between God’s law and the law of sin. Praise be to God, then, for His infinite and redemptive mercy! As the readings remind us today, God is gracious and patient though we are unfaithful and combative. He is constantly forgiving us and waiting for our contrite hearts to return to Him. How can this be? Growing up we are taught that “it’s three strikes and you’re out!” or even worse, “there are no second chances.” Why, then, would God be willing to take us back over and over again?
