Join us as Fr. Marcantoni discusses the concept of implication, or reading between the lines, and how what is implied in Jesus telling the Disciples to receive the Holy Spirit and to then go forth forgiving sins is infinitely more profound than an injunction to “let things go.”  What is implied is that God is not concerned with simply making us better behaved, more ethical or nicer. It is a Divine vote of confidence that we can rise to the occasion of participating in His work, if we will accept His Grace to do so.
