“He who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Lk. 18:14)
How does one approach God justified? Jesus tells us that in order to be justified before God, one must approach with humility and mindful of one’s sinfulness. God’s heart is with those who acknowledge their sinfulness and ask for His forgiveness and compassion. That is why, in the parable, between the two, the tax collector went home justified. Spiritual writers say that prayer justifies; “for repentant prayer or supplicant repentance, raising up the soul to God and re-uniting it to His goodness, without doubt obtains pardon in virtue of the Holy Love which gives it this sacred movement.” (St. Francis de Sales, Treatise on the Love of God, 2, 20).READ MORE
