8.45 I am so bad; how can I ever forgive myself?
Forgiving - #OnlineSaints
Margaret seduced a nobleman into becoming her lover. When he suddenly died in an accident, Margaret was afraid that he would go to hell because of her. She decided to dedicate the rest of her life to God alone and care for people in need.
She gradually realised that God had already forgiven her, and this helped her to forgive herself. She shows that it is never too late to turn to God, and that he wants to forgive you and inspire you to forgive yourself too.
