In today's Gospel reading from Luke 17, Jesus said to his disciples, "Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the one through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin." Sin indeed has no place before God. Sinning on your own is one thing; causing others to sin is so much worse! Let's ask the Lord to help us be pure and holy.
