Thought of the Day January 12, 2018 Reconciliation

By 11:19 AM

Lord, you healed the leper when he asked for healing. You touched him and restored his disfigured body. Who are the modern day spiritual lepers? We, who are sinners. Sin has disfigured us. While the physical leper was considered to be ritually unclean, we, the spiritual lepers are actually unclean and in need of purification. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation you encounter us in our brokenness, you touch us with your absolving mercy, you heal and restore us to our dignity as beloved children of the Father and Temples of the Holy Spirit. Our marred figure is made pristine and beautiful in your image and likeness.
