Sin and Blaming

Cycle BOrdinary TimeWeek 10

by Bishop Robert BarronJune 10, 2018


In all the literature of the world, I dont know of a richer account of who we are, what we’re called to be, and what goes wrong with us than the first chapters of Genesis—especially the third chapter, from which our first reading comes. And we see in our Gospel for today that what happens to us in the immediate wake of original sin—alienation, shame, self-centeredness, scapegoating—helps us immensely to understand Jesus and his work.
