Hello everyone! I‘m Sr. Vassa, and this is just a coffee break; a brief reflection
0:13
for the middle of the day. Well, the real reason I‘m doing this is, actually,
0:19
is that I'm having a little problem
0:20
with my writers lately. They are just sitting around and playing video-games, instead of writing
0:26
new episodes for you. Don't worry, it's just a phase, I'm sure.
0:31
I thought, for now, I'll just share one of my own thoughts with you.
0:38
This is something that occurred to me for no particular reason, that God gives me the freedom to
0:45
be wrong. Why does He do this? Don‘t we and others suffer from our sins? Does
0:53
any good come of them? Actually, yes – if we, first of all, pay attention and notice
1:01
our wrongs, and, secondly, if we approach our mistakes properly. Like the repentant
1:08
thief on the cross, who recognizes his own wrongs and then, more importantly,
1:15
changes focus and notices the divine
1:18
goodness of the God-Man on the cross next to him, saying, “this man has done nothing
1:25
wrong“ and he says to Jesus: “Remember me, Lord, when you come into your kingdom!“
1:30
(Lk 23: 41-42) So let‘s remember that we can grow to embrace God‘s kingdom through
1:38
recognizing our wrongs and changing course, because – just like we have the freedom
1:43
to be wrong, we also have the freedom to change course and appeal to the mercy of Christ,
1:51
who hangs on the Cross with outstretched hands. And finally, when we reflect on our freedom
1:58
today, let‘s remember that other people around us – when they perhaps annoy us with
2:05
their defects and wrongs – that they also posses this God-given freedom, both to be wrong, and to
2:14
change course! But that‘s about all I have for you today! Think good thoughts today, zillions,
2:21
and I hope to see you next time!
