Witness to Your Own Death

Sounds morbid and horrible. Who would want to see themselves die-like watching it all unfold in a mirror?

Yet, that's what sin is and does. It kills our body and our soul. Slowly. It eats away at us from the inside out-like a cancer. It may not be visible from the outside, but it's there.

It's possible that no one else on Earth knows how wracked with sin you are-no one but you.

We need a doctor. We need the Lord. In the dual role of physician and spiritual healer: we need a priest, acting in persona Christi to absolve us and begin our healing from our sins. Father helps dispose us to receive the ultimate medicine: Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

The ultimate healing miracle.

Very thought postulating post! How horrible our world would be without priests--who would give us the sacraments, to feed and heal us?

tara: I would not want to imagine such a world.
