Forgiveness of Sins

Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
— Luke 5:21

Of course the Pharisees and scribes were right. Jesus is saying he can do what only God can do. Later he gives this power to Peter and the other apostles. These are not the sins that, in the Our Father, we say we forgive — but perhaps there is a connection, since we cannot forgive, except by power of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.


O my Father!

J’aime bien cette façon qu’a Paul de dire « mon Dieu ». Cet adjectif « possessif » ne signifie évidemment d’aucune façon que Paul penserait posséder Dieu. Il y a plutôt une connotation d’intimité.
— Armand Veilleux, Chapitre 10 décembre 2006 à la Communauté de Scourmont
