February 26, 2024, Luke 6:36-38

Nothing is More Exciting and Life Changing.

Being like God! Is there any way that we do not want to be like God? Why would we choose a different path that will only lead to suffering? One of the worst torments of the human heart is holding a grudge. And if we don’t want to be like God, our grievance against another person is our only way of dealing with the pain that grudges cause us.

When Jesus says, “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful,” it’s something he expects us to do. We cause ourselves more pain by holding a grudge than the person did to us. It can all be over in a moment. If only we return to Jesus and confess that we did not want his mercy but needed it badly.

If there were another way for God to forgive us than for Jesus to suffer his passion and death on the cross, He would’ve done it. Take hold of a crucifix in your hands and hear Jesus say from his cross, “Father, forgive them. They don’t know what they are doing.” Keep repeating it. See what happens to you and your pain.

Gospel Challenge:

The greatest act of love is mercy. St. Julian of Norwich said in the 11th century, “The person who loves us the most is the person who knows us at our worst and still chooses to love us.” You can do it! We all can love that much! Jesus said, “With Me, all things are possible.” Believe it with all your heart.

For your convenience, The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available every evening during Lent, starting on March 18 from 6-7 p.m., Monday through Friday, until Wed., March 26.

No confessions will be heard from Holy Thursday through Easter Sunday. Please take advantage of this opportunity. We will continue to have confessions on Saturdays from 3-4 p.m.

Love Your Neighbor:

Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…
