I will heal their defection

March 24, 2017 6:00 am

“I will heal their defection, says the LORD, I will love them freely; for my wrath is turned away from them. I will be like the dew for Israel: he shall blossom like the lily; He shall strike root like the Lebanon cedar, and put forth his shoots.” (HOS 14: 5-7)

We were created in God’s image and likeness. A free, creative and joyful gift of selves is a part of our heritage. This is His and our nature; this is a way we can grow and create long lasting relationships. Because God, who “loves us freely,” is always concerned with us, His beloved children, so His “wrath is turned away from us,” and He seeks to help us grow, starting with taking care of our betrayal: He “will heal our defection.”

“Repent, says the Lord; the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Gospel Acclamation)
