"No one is beyond redemption. There is no crime, no misdeed, no transgression beyond the reach of God's mercy. However, the sin or transgression that is beyond God's reach, that cannot be forgiven, is where the person who committed it does not seek or want God's forgiveness or mercy. They close their heart and turn their back on God . . . This is why the grace or repentance, the act of contrition, is such a mercy: because it is a sign of God's presence in our lives."
Lord Jesus, this Lent lead me to make a good confession. May I seek out the grace of God's mercy and forgiveness with a humble and contrite heart.
