"What then must your mercy be, dear God, to bear with me after so many crimes, with me who am no more that a handful of mire, and to recall me to you without any wish to destroy me! How great must your love be to outweigh, to overcome this dreadful aversion which you naturally have for sin! Really, this consideration pierces my heart, and fills me, I think, with a very tender love for God." (St. Claude La Colombiere) If we reflect on the infinite, unconditional mercy of our loving God, how can we not respond in two ways? How can we continue to blatantly sin (even though we will always far short of the glory of God out of weakness)? How can we not respond in love for love?
