People often ask how to define sin. Sin is simply anything that harms relationships – our relationships with each other, our relationships with our true selves, and our relationship with God. We sin in many ways. Sometimes we sin with our actions, and sometimes we sin with our inaction. Let us pray for all the times we failed to stand up for what is right, failed to protect those who Jesus calls the least of these.
