“Keep yourselves in the love of God and wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. On those who waver, have mercy; save others by snatching them out of the fire; on others have mercy with fear, abhorring even the outer garment stained by the flesh.” (JUDE 21-23)
We personally experience Our Lord’s mercy “that leads to eternal life.” We have to follow His example and do the same: “have mercy.” When we see sins, we need to answer like Our Lord—“have mercy”; only mercy is the right response to sin, not offense or disgust. He is merciful, not because we are perfect but because we are imperfect. Love is the only solution.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
