February 21, 2011 – Leviticus 22

The whole idea of the unblemished sacrifice makes me think of the idea of going to Mass and just going through the motions.  When we go to Mass, we are participating in the Sacrifice of the Mass.  That participation is what needs to be unblemished.  If our mind is wandering, we are worried about what so and so is wearing, thinking about how to get out as quickly as possible, our offering to God is blemished and not an acceptable gift.  I know that none of us is perfect, but these offerings were not perfect either.  There was only one Perfect Lamb, Jesus.  But what they are told to give is unblemished, or their best.  That is what we are to give when we go to Mass.  Our full attention and our every effort to fully participate.  When we fail to focus and are thinking about other things, we are offering God a blemished lamb, and such a one is not acceptable to the Lord.
