This past week while conducting a Parish Mission…a first grader asked me this pertinent question
This past week while conducting a Parish Mission at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Inverness, Florida, a first grader asked me this pertinent question; “Why did they Vote for the criminal instead of Voting for Jesus?”
So why did they vote for Barabbas instead of Jesus? There just isn’t an easy explanation, but hurtful things are done and the only response is the one Jesus gave….”Forgive them, Father, they don’t know what they’re doing.”
Out of the blue comes the beauty of loving…to forgive…Lent might be the best time to consider that.
