Mercy through Love

October 25, 2016

“Above all hold unfailing your love for one another,
since love covers a multitude of sins.” – 1 Peter 4:8

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Gospel is all about love. All of the law, the prophets, the commandments, the beatitudes, and the Cross point to this profound message of love. The Old Testament taught us that “God is.” The New Testament finishes the sentence, “God is…Love.”

Once we comprehend that we are objects of such a divine love, our sets are set on fire.

“Her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much.”

Prayer for Divine Mercy
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
