Got a new battery for my car, so I was able to go to Mass this morning. During Eucharistic Prayer, I heard the priest, while consecrating the wine, say "...this is the cup of my blood... It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven." I had heard this countless times, but today those last four words hit me. Only God has the power to forgive our sins! It's a tremendous grace available to us. Whether your sins are forgiven or not makes all the difference ~ the difference between eterrnal union with God and Eternal separation from him. Always take the Lord's words seriously, for he offers us only love.
