"Reflecting on the day’s Gospel reading at Mass (Lk. 13:1-9), Pope Francis devoted his February 28 Angelus address to God’s patience in awaiting our conversion.
Christ “invites us to change the heart, to make a radical switch on the path of our lives, abandoning compromises with evil,” the Pope told the crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square. “But again there is the temptation to justify ourselves. What should we convert from? Aren’t we basically good people? — How many times we have thought this.”
The Pope added:
Have you thought about the patience of God? Have you thought as well of his limitless concern for sinners? How it should lead us to impatience with ourselves! It’s never too late to convert. Never. Until the last moment, God’s patience awaits us … It’s never too late to convert, but it’s urgent. It’s now! Let us begin today.
