7. Penance and reconciliation

20 November 2021

Discover the life and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola with these video series.

One of the hardest things to do in life is to reconcile with one’s own mistakes and sins. In fact, we are often more merciful to other people’s sin than to our own. We don’t seem capable of integrating our fragility and our sin into a life following Jesus Christ. Iñigo de Loyola suffered greatly because of this reality. After his conversion in Loyola, he couldn’t integrate all the evil he had done into his new life. It was only after he realised that what lifts us off the ground and makes us worthy before God is not our own strength, but his infinite love and mercy, that things began to change in his life. He discovered that rather than looking at himself too much, he should look to and trust in Jesus Christ, who came to call sinners.
