The joy of God is forgiving
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
