Can I Sin Now and Ask for Forgiveness Later?

We hear stories of deathbed conversions—people seeking the Lord’s mercy in their final hour. This might tempt us to put off conversion and save our confessions for “another day”. This, my friends, is called the sin of presumption—the choice to sin because we know that God will forgive us. This grave sin prevents us from living in God’s grace today and receiving His mercy.

Fr. Mark-Mary proclaims that today is the day to repent. Today is the day to convert, to confess your sins and live in the glorious freedom promised to a child of God.
