Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

“Most comforting, Jesus is “the Lamb of God, who takes away the [sin/sins] of the world” (John 1:29). In Gospel passages, “sin” appears in the “collective singular,” affirming Jesus’ lifting away the whole crushing burden of a fractured world. In liturgical texts, the plural “sins” is often used, inviting us to entrust to Christ’s infinite compassion our own personal, multiplied share in the brokenness of the wider world.

“Aún más reconfortante es que Jesús es “el Cordero de Dios, el que quita el pecado del mundo” (Juan 1:29). Jesús le quita la carga a un mundo fracturado y nos invita a confiar en su
compasión infinita, y a dejar en sus manos nuestra propia y multiplicada parte en esa fractura del mundo. 

To whom and how am I being called to be the servant of God’s “raising and restoring” Jesus?

¿A quiénes y cómo soy enviado a fin de ser el siervo de Dios, para “restablecer” a Jesús en la vida de ellos y “reunir” a los que andan alejados?
