St. Gianna Beretta Molla and Sin Print E-mail
Friday, 15 April 2011 00:00

 "If one were to consider how much Jesus has suffered, one would not commit the smallest sin." (St. Gianna Beretta Molla)

There is an e-mail circulating lately which details the suffering that Christ experienced on the cross:  the tortuous pain and humiliation of a crucifixion.  It is extremely difficult to read, and brings to mind not only how much God loves us, but also how much humanity is capable of evil, to the point of crucifying the Divine.  Yet in spite of this, because of His mercy and forgiveness, God still loves us deeply, as a mother loves her child or a lover his beloved. 

So, if like St. Gianna we know and believe that our sins caused Christ to suffer, what are we to do?  Because we certainly don't want to sin anymore, and yet we do, every day.  How do we reconcile sin in our lives if we are believers?

The answer comes in Scripture, in part in St. Paul's letter to the Romans:  "We know that our old self was crucified with (Christ) so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.  For whoever has died is freed from sin.  But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him...So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus." (Romans 6:6-8, 11)  There it is!  As believers we have spiritually died with Christ, and so are dead to sin; we live in Him.  Since we aren't slaves to sin, although we still commit sin it is without condemnation.  WE ARE FREE - WE BELONG TO CHRIST!

When a slave was freed he threw off his chains and was able to stand tall and come into his full potential as a human being; so we, too, reach that potential with freedom from sin.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the precious gift you gave us; help us to recognize our freedom and use it to become what we were created to be: your beloved child.

St. Gianna Beretta Molla, pray for us!
