Our Own Sins

        At morning Mass Today, when I came to saying "I have sinned through my own fault" in reciting the Penitential Act, I was particularly struck by the phrase "through my own fault."  Indeed, I cannot sin through someone else's fault; neither can others sin through mine.  When I am being judged before the Lord, I cannot blame anyone else for my sins.  We are the source of our own sins.
