Our call to live and understand Reparation more fully, offers tremendous opportunity toward sanctification of our sufferings. Many of our beloved Donnes are home-bound or limited due to age, incapacitation of illness. We are called to pray for each other but also to offer acts of reparation to help and support each other. Advent, the beginning of the Liturgical Year, is a wonderful time to consider ways of accomplishing this.
