Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me for my guilt
and of my sin cleanse me.
A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.
Today the Gospel is a reminder of the importance of Lent and the request Jesus makes of us that we take note of our sins and weaknesses and lay them at the feet of Jesus in the Confessional and then die to self as we humbly allow Jesus to be in control of our lives... "there is something greater than Jonah here." Luke 11:32 The animals are included in the penance paid for their sins to God in Jonah... the animals fasted, wore sackcloth and they were spared by God!
Jesus, may we have a change of heart and die to self so that you can come to life in our domestic Church/family. If we cannot share your love with those the closest to us, how can we ever reach out beyond to share our love? May we find a haven of peace in our homes and from there reach out to be your hands and feet, O Lord. Jesus, we trust in you and humbly ask for your unconditional love and forgiveness so that we may return it to those in our lives. Amen
"What a gift Pope Francis is giving to The Church with this year of Mercy... What do we need more than Mercy?! Read Misericordia Voltus - it's beautiful." I love you. God Bless, your little Sister Hallel. Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
A broken contrite humble heart - you will not spurn...
St Faustina gives us The Divine Chaplet of Mercy - I was gifted with time in the Adoration chapel and was able to get to my chaplet for the first time in a long time - it is so important to pray for our dead and all souls waiting to get to heaven! So powerful and how we will need this Mercy in our own final days and leading up to our death!
Much to pray about that we get a life minded judge to replace this great Catholic man!
