We must try to be children who realize that the Lord is such a good Father, by loving us as his children, he has taken us into his house, in the middle of the world. . .Our Father in heaven pardons any offense when his child returns to him, when he repents and asks for pardon. The Lord is such a good Father that he anticipates our desire to be pardoned and comes forward to us, opening his arms laden with grace . . . He wants us to call him Father; he wants us to savor that word, our souls filled with joy. Human life is in some way a constant returning to our Father’s house.
– St. Josemaría Escrivá
