A God of Second Chances

God is a “God of Second Chances,” so says Bishop Sklba.  Condemned because of his sin and by his sin, God spares Cain’s life.  It is a powerful lesson for those of us who demand some type of “justice” in capital punishment or retaliation.  When people of faith rush to such conclusions we earn the “Divine Exasperation,” that deep sighing in the heart that Jesus does when he encounters stubborn arguments.

Fr. Becket, O.S.B.
