Delights in clemency

July 19, 2016 6:00 am

“Who is there like you, the God who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance; who does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency, and will again have compassion on us, treading underfoot our guilt? You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.” (MIC 7: 18-19) 

Our God looks for any occasion to show us His mercy, compassion and “delight in clemency.” He “removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of His inheritance.” When we bring Him our sins, He knows perfectly what to do with them: He “will cast them into the depths of the sea.”

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
