Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Jesus took from us what was ours so He could give to us what is His.
When we come face to face with our sin, we realize that we owe a debt we cannot pay. When we come face to face with Jesus, we realize that He paid a debt He did not owe. This is the free gift that saves us from hopelessness: we are saved by grace through faith working itself out in love.
