Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 14, 2021
Today, in God’s Lavish Mercy, we pray with Psalm 32 in which the psalmist expresses joy at being delivered from great suffering.
On this Valentines Day, our culture incentivizes us to think about “love”.
But our psalm might ask us to ponder that the greatest suffering is to believe, quite falsely, that we are unloved – or worse, unloveable. Still, Psalm 32 assures us that we are never unloveable to our God:
Then I acknowledged my sin to youPsalm 32
my guilt I covered not.
I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
and you took away the guilt of my sin.
On this Valentines Day, you may have many dear human hearts to whom you wish to tell your love. But most important, in your prayer, tell the One Who is Love within you. And listen to Love telling you the same.
