Reflection for Yom Kippur

Today is the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur; above all it is a time of reflection. Please reflect on the following stanzas:


FAILURES OF JUSTICE


We sin against You when we sin against ourselves.

For our failures of justice, O Lord, we ask forgiveness.


For waging aggressive war,

and for the sin of appeasing aggressors.


For obeying criminal orders,

and for the sin of silence and indifference.
