Wrong turns leading to love

"All through the Gospels, it was those who had taken wrong turnings who were particularly loved by Jesus, because once they recognized their mistake, they were all the more open to his healing message."

"It was those who were willing to rebuild their lives who were most ready to listen to Jesus and become his disciples," the Holy Father said. "You can follow in their footsteps, you too can grow particularly close to Jesus because you have chosen to turn back toward him."
