Readings of the day:
Psalm 79:8-9, 11, 13
“The measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you”. -Luke 6:38
For everyone who seeks for mercy must in turn be merciful. For anyone who seek forgiveness must in turn forgive. Who haven received forgiveness should not grant it in return? God in his love expect us to extend the hand of love and goodness to everyone we met(for he never tires of giving us this ourselves).
There is always a temptation to raise the bar overly high for others, to expect total perfection, but in all this, we should know people can fail sometimes. We do fail sometimes! But in our failure, we get to move on. Would our hands be there to grab people when they fail? As God grabs us when we fail. Who knows whether it would be our turn tomorrow? We should always do everything in the spirit of Love.
In the words of St. Paul, “Let everything you do be done in Love”. – 1Corinthians 16:14
In recognition of St. Patrick this day, his work cannot be forgotten with the people of ireland. He gave his all, and in return he was blessed for it(that’s one reason he is highly honored there).
May God help us, we pray.
Peace and Love of Christ
