I desire mercy, not sacrifice

July 21, 2017 6:00 am

“If you knew what this meant, I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned these innocent men. For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath.” (MT 12: 7) 

Our Lord is merciful, and He expects from us that our first reaction will be looking for forgiveness and looking for a defense rather than for accusations or my rights. This is why we put in our Program a very important element—how to defend my spouse from accusations–how to protect, instead of attack. We “hear His voice,” and we follow Him, our Merciful Lord. 

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord, I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
