Repentance can only be manifested in love to others. Love is greater than any rules or restrictions, for what good does it do to follow the rules or be confined by restrictions, but not have actual amor in your heart? To show your sincere apology, you do for others because you know how wretched you are. Therefore, you forgive others. You give and offer them your repentance through the love you give to them and to perfect strangers, Brothers and Sisters, no matter their human faults.
You prove through love.
This is very hard, harder than the rules, harder than the restrictions. With love, you are required to create, for absolution requires action on your part. By giving amor no matter what, you are offering the manifestation of Ten Our Fathers and Ten Hail Marys.
Redemption, the reward, is a never ending process until the day you die. Redemption is not yours. It is not for you.
