Delights in clemency

February 27, 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? (MI 7: 18-19)

Clemency or mercy is another name for Our God, “who removes guilt and pardons sin,” “who does not persist in anger,” and who “will again have compassion on us.” Every day we can meet Our Lord in His Word, in the Eucharist and in the Sacraments, especially in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Penance.

 “I will get up and go to my father and shall say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
