The Passion and Future Sins

Try meditating on the sacrifice of Christ while doing an examination of conscience.  It is important to realize that Christ died for every individual sin we commit, down to the smallest venial one.  In addition, Christ did not die just for our past sins but our future ones as well, and every sin we commit adds to the suffering of Christ.  I find that nothing makes me want to keep my contritional promise to "sin no more and avoid whatever leads me to sin" like looking at a Crucifix.

  1. "Christ did not die just for our past sins but our future ones as well." We need to remember that every one of our sins was in the future when He died. That is how much He loved us.

    Great reflection!!!!!
