Sin can, and does, separate us from God’s love. Jesus came to reconcile us with the Father, but we have to say “yes,” which means an ongoing conversion.

The presumption that characterizes this pope’s relationship with God, while soothing to some, can lead people to illusion and alienation, rather than conversion and communion with the Father.
