Taking Them Away

This morning at Mass when the priest elevated the Host and said, "Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him Who takes away the sins of the world...," I thought, "The sins of the world! THE SINS OF THE WORLD!!" All of the terrible, slogging, soul-destroying horror that we see all around us every day, and all that is done in secret in our souls, now and from the time of the first sin to the end of the world, taken away by the sacrifice of the cross. I'm sure I can't begin to convey how overwhelming this was to me, but it was completely overwhelming. And there was I, about to consume that Lamb of God. Amazing. 

Every day. We can do this every day.

  1. I don't know why I even try to proofread. I know I'll find some awful typo 24 hours later.
