Went to vigil Mass today. When I heard "this is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world" proclaimed, I felt tremendous gratitude. In life we are grateful for the many things others do for us, but the Lord taking away our sins ~ that's in a totally different league, for it affects our eternal destiny. If sins are not taken away, forget about a smooth journey to heaven. When I realized this, I was deeply moved by God's generosity and love.
