Atonement and Reparation

Monday, October 10, 2005
Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
On Wednesday at sundown Yom Kippur begins for the Jewish people. As I understand it Catholics call atonement reparation. It is something one does not hear much about these days in many more liberal circles but we are constantly called to make reparation to God for not only our sins but those of mankind. We face a time, I feel, of a great darkness that has fallen upon humankind due to our own choices to go outside God's Law. We see it on the television and throughout the world. People surrender their freedom when they give in to base insticts. God's Law creates a framework for human dignity, love and peace that we can build our lives upon. Outside the Law of God we are like the jellyfish which drifts ashore to die. The only way for humankind avoid some very difficult times that we have opened the door to by our own lawlessness is by making reparation and reforming our lives. So as our brothers and sisters begin the Day of Atonement I suggest that we all make our own reparation for our own sins and those of others. God who is rich in Mercy will come to our assistance but we must take a few steps ourselves towards Him for the whole world. We within the Mystical Body of Christ need to make our own atonement to the Father.

Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

"Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world." + Prayer from the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
