I have come to call not the righteous, but sinners.
- Luke 5:32
Jesus is not ashamed to associate with those his contemporaries thought unworthy. He knows human nature. He knows we come to him because we are needy. Were we already finished products of sanctity, we would have little need of him!
May we ask him this day for the grace to see where we have failed and may we resolve to take a positive step forward towards a more faithful discipleship.
