Jesus' parable of the two men who come to the Temple to pray (Luke 18) illustrates the beautiful prayer of contrition, which is the foundation for coming into right relationship with God. The Pharisee of the parable judges other people to be wicked, turns to himself, and proclaims his own goodness. The tax collector judges himself to be wicked, turns to God, and proclaims his guilt and need for mercy. And he goes home justified. In this episode, Fr. Ryan shares how we can pray this prayer of contrition each day.
