The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Series on Conversion by Fr Haggerty (Part 2 of 8): Chapter 3


Remembering your sin can be uncomfortable. But it’s not about the sin—remembering your sin is remembering God’s mercy. It’s going back to Jesus’s presence at that moment, and to the way he changed it. Remembering that is the start of understanding your conversion more deeply, and to living your conversion more sustainably. A conversion based solely on feelings just doesn’t last.


After all, we don’t graduate from being poor; from being one who is saved, from needing a saviour. Being poor is a permanent posture of the disciple.


There’s only one place our sin makes sense: at the foot of the cross. Take the crucifix off the wall and bring it close. Study it. Spend time with it. Make the sacrifice of Christ personal. Does his suffering matter to you?
