December 7th

“The Son of Man is come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will render to everyone according to his conduct” – (Mt. 16:27)

If we wish for justice from God no one will be saved. Thus we immediately ask for mercy for ourselves and for others. “Thou hast absolved Mary Magdalene, and heard the prayer of the good thief, give hope also to me. My prayers are not worthy. But Thou who art good, I beg Thee, do not allow me to burn in eternal fire.” – Sequence Dies Irae from the Requiem Mass.

We cannot ask for forgiveness unless we forgive freely all those who have harmed us. God became man, was born in squalor and died on the cross. . .for us. But nothing was more glorious because He, the Infinite Godhead, did it out of love. I know my trials today will seem less important when compared with what He did and does do for me everyday.
