reparation for sins

BEFORE THE CROSS | Sharing Jesus’ mission means making reparation for others’ sins, too

When the Jewish people returned to Jerusalem after 50 years in exile, they set about rebuilding the Temple. The destruction of the Temple wasn't their fault — that was due to the sins of others. But the task of rebuilding fell to them.

Their example serves as a pattern for our Lenten discipline and, really, for all of Christian life.
