Mercy and Love; the essence of God
"If you O Lord should mark our guilt, Lord who would survive? But with you is found mercy and for this we revere you", proclaims the Psalmist in Psalm 130:3. The nature of God is mercy or as Pope Francis says, “God’s name is love and his surname is mercy”. Today we are celebrating the Sunday of the mercy of God which he unreservedly shows to us poor, wretched sinners. The mercy of God goes beyond human imagination.
