They ran and made haste

15 October 2022

According to the Gospel, the fruit of repentance is the return from sin. This is what the prodigal son did and he was saved. Once he’d abandoned sin, he returned to his father and confessed. This is also what the choir of the Apostles practiced and taught. They lived striving for this. They ran and made haste to see sinners return… and they all were interested in bringing all of them to salvation.
