Psalm 130 - "Plenteous Redemption!"

For with him is plenteous redemption.
Psalm 130.4
Experience of penitence has also led to a wide interpretation of redemption; it is plenteous, free, bounteous, not exhausted at the first exercise. And from out of self the penitent has advanced to see therein the Redeemer of Israel; the Church is seen as the sphere of redemption, and the Church as the redeemed from among mankind. Life in the Church is the continued experience of redemption. We were not redeemed one by one, nor can we live singly; life is collective.

This quote is from a meditation Fr David Jenks prepared for the 2nd Saturday of Lent.
