The Mystery of Our Reconciliation

From a letter by Saint Leo the Great (400-461), pope


Majesty assumes humility; power, weakness; eternity, mortality; and, to pay the debt incurred by our sinful condition, an invulnerable nature is united to a passible one. In this manner, as was convenient for our remedy, the one and same mediator between God and mankind, Christ Jesus, also a man, could be mortal and immortal at the same time by the union within Him of this dual condition.

He who is true God is born as a true man, without lacking anything in the integrity of His human nature, conserving the totality of His proper essence, and assuming the totality of our human essence. And, when saying our human essence, we are referring to that nature that was embodied in ours from the Creator, and that He assumes so as to restore it.

Our nature became corrupt when man let Himself be deceived by the malignant one, yet no vestige of this original corruption or vice is found in the nature assumed by the Saviour. He, in effect, while making our frailty His own, did not make Himself a participant of our sins.

He took the condition of a slave, yet free of the deafness of sin, ennobling our humanity without lessening His divinity because this stunning act of His - for which, He, who was invisible, made Himself visible, and He, who is the Creator and Lord of all things, wanted to be one more among the mortals: it was a dignifying act of His mercy, not a lack of power. Therefore, the same one that, remaining in His divine condition, made man, is the same One that becomes that same man, taking the condition of a slave.

And so, in this manner, the Son of God makes His entrance into the lowness of this world, descending from the celestial throne, without leaving the glory He has together with the Father, being engendered in a new order of things.

A new order of things, because He who is invisible by His nature makes Himself visible in ours; He who was inaccesible to our minds wanted to be accessible - the one who existed before time, began to exist in time: the Lord of the entire universe, veiling the immensity of His majesty, assuming the condition of a slave, the unaffected and inmortal God deigns to become a passive man, subject to the laws of death.

The same One that is true God is also true man, and in Him, in all truth, are united the smallness of man and the grandiosity of God.

Neither did God suffer any change with this dignation of His piety, nor was man left destroyed by being elevated to this dignity. Each one of the two natures realizes its own actions in communion with the other. This is to say, the Word realizes what is proper of the Word, and the flesh what is proper of the flesh.

Being the Word, it shines because of its miracles; being the flesh, it succumbs to injuries. And as the Word retains its glory from the Father, in the same manner the flesh conserves the proper nature of our race.

One nature is resplendent with miracles, the other falls victim to injuries. As the Word does not lose equality with the Father’s glory, so the flesh does not leave behind the nature of our race.

One and the same person - we will not tire repeating this - is truly the Son of God and truly the son of man.

He is God because in the beginning the Word already existed, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He is man because the Word made itself flesh, and dwelt among us.

Prayer

Lord, You have wanted the Word to become incarnate in the womb of the Virgin Mary; grant us, in your goodness, that all of us who confess our Redeemer as true God and true man, will come to make ourselves like Him in His divine nature. Through our lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

"Requiem aeternam" (Eternal Rest) three times a day.
Pope Leo XIII, February 3, 1888)


Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

Pero de ti procede el perdón,

Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;

Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.

y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
