Keep this Fulton Sheen quote handy, especially if you’re having a hard day. And if you find it inspiring, you can easily share it directly from the embedded post below:
The fuller version of the quote used in the video:
It’s never too late. In Lent, we should look ahead rather than back. Though time is too precious to waste, it must never be thought that what was lost is irretrievable. Once the Divine is introduced, then comes the opportunity to make up for losses. GOD IS THE GOD OF THE SECOND CHANCE.
Peter denied, but he had the second chance in which to become as solid as a rock. There really is such a thing as a “second birth”. Being born again means that all that went before is not held against us. The thief on the right side of the Lord on Calvary wasted a human life, but in accepting pardon won eternal life.
As always, Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen comes through with GEM! It may be hard at times to remember or understand just how much God loves us, but we must always remember that he does. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, he loves you. He is always ready and waiting to give you a second (or third, or fourth, or six thousandth) chance.
