May contrition for our sins always draw us nearer
to the One who died because of them.
"For this is what the high and lofty One says--
He who lives forever, whose name is holy:
'I live in a high and holy place,
but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite.'"
Isaiah 57:15 NIV
