Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Lent.

“God is not ashamed of your shame. He is not ashamed of what we’re ashamed of. He is not afraid of what scares us. He is not afraid of our sins. God is not shocked by the fact that we are weak. …So do not, do not, please, my brothers and sisters, do not allow your shame or your sin or your weakness to keep you in shadow.”
