On Track With Bro. Larry

A few years ago, rumors spread that a certain Catholic woman was having visions of Jesus. The archbishop decided to check her out.

"Is it true, ma’am, that you have visions of Jesus?” asked the cleric.

"Yes,” the woman replied.

"Well, the next time you have a vision, I want you to ask Jesus to tell you the sins that I confessed in my last confession. Please call me if anything happens.”

Ten days later the woman notified her spiritual leader of a recent apparition.

Within the hour the archbishop arrived. “What did Jesus say?” he asked.

She took his hand and gazed deep into his eyes. “Bishop,” she said, “these are his exact words: ‘I CAN'T REMEMBER. ‘”

The psalmist put it this way: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:11-12). When we pray, “Forgive us our trespasses …,” we’re remembering what God will forget!
