Thought of the Day July 19, 2016

Lord, your forgiveness is as total as your love is unconditional. The prophet Micah proclaims that you cast our sins into the sea when you forgive us and that you delight in clemency. It is your way of reminding us of the depth of your love and mercy for us, who are  underserving because of the repetitive nature of our sinfulness. There is no other way to respond to this gift of mercy than to imitate the same in our relationship with others, even imperfectly. You set the bar for us in this area of forgiveness at a level we can humanly reach with the help of your grace. Like the spiritual athlete we are called to be on our journey, let us aim high, even though we don't clear the bar on the first few times.
