The Mystery of Grace

Forgiveness is the word of the day in today’s Gospel. LTP’s Lent sourcebook has a nice quote from St Leo the Great:

What mind can understand its mystery, what tongue can do justice to the gift of grace? Evil reverts to innocence, the ancient becomes new, outsiders are adopted into the family, and strangers enter into their inheritance.

I like God’s upside-down view of the universe.

  1. You’re either going to laugh, or spit, Todd.
    What mind can understand its mystery, what tongue can do justice to the gift of grace?
    So, uh, Leo the Great (Doctor Leo)essentially sez “comprehensibility” ain’t just the end all, be all?”
    Evil reverts to innocence, the ancient becomes new, outsiders are adopted into the family, and strangers enter into their inheritance.
    And all that institutional liturgical corruption from the Borgias to Pius X is re-deem-ed, we RotR/Trads are embraced, and the great unwashed finally get THE CHANT?

    I’m just sayin’, tongue firmly in cheeck, bud.
