Confession

Forgive us, Christ, for we have sinned against you.
We have not loved you as you have loved us.
We have not loved each other as you have asked us to do.
Sometimes, because we are smart, we despise those who are not, instead of helping them with our intelligence.
Sometimes, because we are rich, we despise those who are not, instead of sharing our wealth or helping them get started.
Sometimes, because we are educated, we despise those who are not, instead of teaching them what we have learned.
Sometimes, because we are socially privileged, we despise those who are not, instead of opening a door for them or introduce them to our friends.
Forgive us, Christ, for we have sinned against you.
