in His great mercy

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you who by the power of God are safeguarded through faith, to a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the final time.” (1 PT 1: 3-5)

We are God’s children, and we received, “by the power of God,” a salvation “that is ready to be revealed in the final time.” Whatever Our Lord did for us, He did it “in His great mercy,” and among many other gifts, we received “a new birth to a living hope.” With hope and faith, enriched by love, we can share with others the new life and love we received from Him.

“Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (Gospel Acclamation)
