Thought of the Day March 3, 2016

"Jesus' love is great, Jesus' love is merciful, Jesus' love forgives; but you have to open yourself, and to open oneself means to repent, to accuse oneself of the things that are not good and which we have done. The Lord Jesus gave himself, and he continues to give himself to us, in order to fill us with all of the mercy and grace of the Father." (Pope Francis) The first initiative is always the Lord's, but we are called to respond. Though the sun is beaming brightly, I can lock myself up in a shelter deep  in the mountain and never feel the warmth or see the light nor experience the power of the sun. We have to come out of our self, shelter enclosure, so that we can receive the fullness of what the Lord is offering.
