Warmest greetings in the Lord Jesus.
In this Jubilee Year of Mercy beginning December 8, we acknowledge the Mercy of God and seek to respond to and offer ourselves to His Merciful Love. We also pray for an increase in mercy. We may think we are merciful, but let’s ask anyway, since Jesus even told his followers: “Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’” In our day-to-day lives, we may experience situations, people, where we don’t feel like being merciful. In fact, it might not even have entered our minds that it was an opportunity to show mercy, until we later reflected on it.
