"Christ unites us all. Christ heals the rift between God and man,
because he IS the healing of that rift. His crucifixion destroyed sin.
His death destroys death. Uniting ourselves to him heals us of every
infirmity and makes up whatever is weak and lacking. Christ heals.
That is Atonement. That is Salvation. The healing and re-integration
of the human person, body, soul and spirit. And to access this grace,
we need to access Him. And how do we do that? Today’s Gospel tells
us. Humility. Repentance."
