Today, in Mercy, we have an awesome first reading from Corinthians in which Paul assures us:
We have not received the spirit of the world
but the Spirit who is from God,
so that we may understand the things freely given us by God.
What joy to realize that God’s own Spirit dwells within us making us one with God, breath within Breath. We have that intimate comfort of knowing God as our dearest Friend, Confidant, and Lover.
Nothing in our lives falls outside God’s embrace and compassion. God’s kindness, graciousness and lavish mercy sustain and inspire us always to believe, to hope, and to love.
In thanksgiving, we pray today’s most fitting Psalm 145.
