If God struck us down us everytime we did something evil, none of us would be here. While God never wills any of us to do evil, He allows us to make our own choices. Love demands freedom. If we choose to sin, God doesn't immediatey do away with us...becuase He desires us to turn back to him. He is PATIENT! His patience is a sign of His love for us. Today's homily shows how patience and forgiveness can lead to tremendous holiness and conversion.
