God, Who delights in clemency

March 23, 2019 9:57 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)

God, Who loves, Who “has compassion on us,” and Who “removes guilt and pardons sin” “delights in clemency.” We can do the same in our marriages—no anger, but gentleness; no changing our spouses, but ourselves; no demands, but the gift of self. When we delight in clemency, we can enjoy our relationships in a very new way.

“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)
