"On the tender compassion which Jesus Christ entertains toward sinners" (part 2)

"Christ Redeemer"

The following is taken from a sermon for the Fourth Sunday in Lent by our Lenten guide, St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church:

"[S]ome sinners, who are immersed in the abyss of sin, may say: Perhaps, if we return to Jesus Christ, he will drive us away.  No; for the Redeemer has said: "And him that cometh to me I will not cast out" - John, vi, 37.  No one that comes to me with sorrow for his past sins, however manifold and enormous they may have been, shall be rejected."

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us.
