Offering Our Sacrifices for Others

When you’re young, it is a big irritant when people you know go against your will, but when you are old, your own body does that.  Having just finished the season of Lent, I am now accustomed to the small sufferings that we can offer to Christ as compensation for past sins, and I try to take them with fortitude.

As a matter of fact, I’ll go further, and offer them for the benefit of others.  Putin is the first one who comes to mind whose behavior could profit from small sacrifices.  You may think his behavior is beyond small improvements, but I do believe in praying for my enemies.
