Reconciled by the Cross

Joyful Papist

An excerpt from Simcha Fisher’s post on ‘Fisher Spirituality

Prayer Before Mass

Almighty God, as we approach your altar to participate in the divine sacrifice of your only-begotten Son, we wonder what we think we are doing here. We are jerks. We are incredible hypocrites. We spent the morning primping in front of the mirror, shrieking at the kids, and pouting at our husbands. We approach you with fear and trembling, and wonder if there’s any possible way we could be reconciled to you in your goodness and your glory.

Then we behold the crucifix; and we say, “Oh.”

I mean,

Amen.
