We'd love to hear from you, so don't be shy!
Now, to our sharing during a week that has been super-busy!
During this Year of Mercy, I cannot help but think about the touch of mercy that was always a part of the Early Christian Community and which must have been the fuel which ignited the faith to spread forth from twelve men to me. What power there is in compassion and mercy and love!
I pray today that I may be on fire with this same kind of compassion and love. I know that I fail miserably at times, when I circle around my own petty wounds and walk by others without a glance. Yes, it happens, too often! Yet, am I not also called to be compassionate and merciful and loving to myself? Can I cut myself some slack, forgive myself and get back up again to love and to be compassionate again? There is always an opportunity to do this.
Who is God asking me to extend a gentle and compassionate word to today? Who is in need of a smile? Who can I pray for?
Lord Jesus, my your word and may love for YOU continue to spread and grow in our own time. Amen!
