Not Because the Sin was Too Big

None of the damned was ever lost because his sin was too great, but because his trust was too small!

— Blessed Fr. Francis Seelos

I heard this quote on a talk radio show today. It says two things to me:

  1. No sin is too big for God to forgive. Let that sink deep into your soul—No sin is too big for God. This is regardless of anything you have done. God will forgive you if you ask. There is nothing anyone can do or say if you do not believe that in your heart.

  2. Trust too small—The lack of trust is based on fear. Any type of fear is something that separates us from God and from others. I am not talking about fear of hell. Just plain fear of any kind.
