  • Franciscan TOR Charism | The Franciscan Friars, TOR
    Baptist through Jesus to the first apostolic sermons is that we are on the wrong path moving away from God To do penance to convert is to make an about face and take a new path Conversion isfrom sin injustice lies selfishness guilt etc to salvation justice truth pardon others Our thoughts are changed to be in harmony with God s thoughts and our ways are changed to His ways In both Old and New Testaments penance involved a change of Lords A constant biblical theme is repentance of idolatry False gods idols had entered the household of the faith alien gods demanded a service due only to the Lord God These idols were not the little or large gold silver or wooden statues but what these represented or promised Our contemporary idols are not much different wealth power a haughty pride sex military might Conversion meant a turning away from the reigning idolatries back to the living God So in the New Testament to do penance or to be converted can only be understood from the perspective of the Kingdom of God To be converted to Christ meant to join Him to follow Him to transfer allegiance to Him and so become a member of the Kingdom actively cooperating with Him to realize the prayer Thy Kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven Jesus calls His disciples together to explain in the Sermon on the Mount what this Kingdom is all about Mt 5 7 Lk 6 It is a clear and practical vision of what it means to follow Jesus He teaches about very concrete realities money possessions power violence anxiety sexuality faith and the law security true and false religion the treatment of our neighbor and our enemy How we respond to these issues is the test of whether we have in fact transferred our allegiance to Jesus Every part of our lives belongs to the One God who created and redeemed us To do penance is to surrender oneself to God in every aspect of our human existence Penance is the decision to allow ourselves to be remade It is a continuing attitude and not a once and finished event It is a moment and yet at the same time a process of transformation which deepens and extends through the whole of our lives Usually for most in the early stages of conversion there is only a confused idea of our sins and complicity in a lifestyle which is alien to God but knowledge and repentance grows The warmth of God s grace melts the soul bringing a clarity of perception so that one is truly able to recognize oneself as sinner This is not a crushing sensation however but a liberating one whose impulse is to move towards God We see by God s grace that our lives have left the path of virtue which is a reflection of the eternal holiness of God We see just where and
