Forgiveness

The joy of God is forgiving

By on January 1, 2021

The joy of God is forgiving.  The joy of a shepherd who finds his little lamb; the joy of a woman who finds her coin; it is the joy of a father welcoming home the son who was lost.  It is not sentiment.  Mercy is the true force that can save man and the world from the “cancer” that is sin, moral evil, spiritual evil.  Only love fills the void, the negative, chasms that evil opens in hearts and in history.

~ Pope Francis

The word of God is the antidote to our fear of having to face life. In speaking to us, the Lord reminds us that we are in his heart, that we are precious in his eyes, and that he holds us in the palm of his hand.
