The Pope assured the faithful that while God asks us to convert, He is patient with us: “ He does not tire, He does not desist after our “no”; He leaves us free even to distance ourselves from Him and to make mistakes. But He anxiously awaits our “yes”, so as to welcome us anew in His fatherly arms and to fill us with His boundless mercy.”

Faith in God, he continued, asks us “to renew every day the choice of good over evil, the choice of the truth rather than lies, the choice of love for our neighbour over selfishness.”

Quoting from Luke he said those who convert to this choice, will be the first to find place in the Kingdom of heaven, “where there is greater joy for a single sinner who converts than for ninety-nine righteous people.”

The Pope also pointed out that conversion is a painful process “of purification from moral encrustations." It is a path, he added, in which there is renunciation and sacrifice. Today's Gospel passage, he said, calls into question the way of living a Christian life that must consist of concrete actions and commitments and love for the other.

Pope Francis concluded invoking the Most Holy Mary to help us to be docile to the actions of the Holy Spirit "who melts the hardness of hearts and disposes them to repentance so we may obtain the life and salvation promised by Jesus.”
