See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

For the forgiveness of sins.

"Courage child, your sins are forgiven you." Mt 9: Today's Gospel
.
Christ's greatest work is our redemption, the forgiveness of sins - miracles of healing served to prove the greater miracle of the forgiveness of sins: "But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins..."  Worrying about our healing of this or that ailment, looking for success or the means to earn a living, even seeking deliverance from some defect is a waste of time unless we repent and seek the forgiveness of our sins.  The forgiveness of sins instills courage and makes all things possible - through the Precious Blood of Christ.
.
"Jesus knew what they were thinking" - he knows our thoughts as well. 
.
How can we continually and repeatedly judge and condemn one another when we do not even know our own need for mercy and forgiveness?

  1. Amen. Alleluia!
    May the Precious Blood of Jesus forgive us, heal us, transform us, save us!
    We offered the EF this morning with the Feast of the Precious Blood and prayed the Litany after Mass as a thanksgiving.
    Hail to the Precious Blood of Jesus!
