GOOD NEvtIS Sirach r5:r5-zo /

e

Corinthians e:6-ro / Matthew 5:r.7-37

eg6 psychiatrist Karl Menninger wrote a book called Whatever Became of Srn? (Hawthorne Books). lt seems that in the backlash against feelings of excessive guilt many people embraced the notion that they weren't ln

responsible for what they did. Their parents, or the way they were raised, or other people made them do evilthings. The popular phrase 'the devil made me do it" captures the sentiment of the era. Menninger wondered about the impact of a world without sin. Therapists were right about the danEer of feeling guilty all the time, and our reactions to past hurts and behaviors are a normal part of growing up. But mature adults also know that reactions come in many forms. When we choose to react to events or people with behaviors or words that hurt others or ourselves, we are responsible and we have sinned. When we choose to do something that is wrong simply because k's easier than doing what's right, we've sinned-however mild or unnoticeable we think that sin is. ln today's readings, Sirach and Jesus hold us accountable for our actions and our thouglrts in no uncertain terms. These Scriptures are part of the underpinnings of the Church's theology of sin, which is not meant to make us craz5it's meart to make us free to love others and ourselves in spite of their brokenness and ours. Can we be perfect? Well, that's a long road. But God wants to help us along that road. We can begin by examining our own conscience for the places and times we've fallen short of the callto love.

People can convert to Catholicism at eny time, but l,ent and Easter are especially associated with the journey of believers into our communionIf a person is in danger of imminent death, reception into the Church can happen in a matter of moments at any time during the year. Flowever, most people who wmt to join the Chureh needn't mstr The Church can gradually tutor them in the life and faith of the community over the course of ayear or more- Adult comrefts normally do this through the Rite of Christian Initiation ofAdults (RCIA), which helps move people from a stage of curiosity and ioqoiry iuto fully conscious and actirre participation in the 6ith and life of the Church. It does this while a$endingtn the rhythm ofthe Churctr's liturgicd year. Lent plays a key role in the RCIAas a seeson of intense *prrit"*l preparation for those who wiltr be received into the Church at the Easter Vigil The Easter season is the traditional time for new comrere to engege in the period of mystagogy-vfien thuy orplore with the faith community the significance of the mysteries they're now li"i"g in their hptisrn, confirmation, and celebration of the Eucharist Fr.
