Spirituality: On Sins

From Julian of Norwich: “If you and I had never sinned, how would we ever come to know how weak we are? How would we ever be able to appreciate the astonishing love God has for us? Even when we sin, we are no less precious in His sight. It is by sinning that we come to know what God’s love means.

From Anthony de Mello, S.J.: “Be grateful for your sins, for they are carriers of grace. For, you see, you really don’t even have to change for God to love you. To forget that is to forget God.”
