“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” – St. John Paul II
For those who have found themselves in the chains of sin like I have, this statement will make absolute sense. As a slave to sin I did exactly what I liked and what I wanted. Yet I was enslaved. I was in a prison in which I could not escape. The waves simply swept me along – drowning me.
Only Christ can free us from our chains so that we can do what we ought to do. What, in the end, we were really seeking to do in the first place.
