The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, said during his homily on Sunday that it is always possible to return to doing good and to begin life anew.
No matter how big the crisis or how great our fear, he said, it is always possible for society to overcome. “Salvation and lifting ourselves up no matter how far we have fallen is always possible, no matter how large the crisis, and this is true for all communities or countries,” he said.
According to the Archdiocese of Mexico City’s news service, the cardinal also pointed out that all sin, “no matter how private or secret” causes harm, and that “there are some sins against neighbors or against one’s brother that violate the fundamental rights of the person,” the cardinal stated.
Nevertheless, he concluded, one can always achieve salvation if one is responsible for his own acts, since nobody has to be irremediable prisoner of his past life.
