Sympathizes with our weaknesses

January 17, 2015 6:00 am

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.” (Heb 4: 15-16)

Even in our weaknesses, we are not alone; there is Someone Who is able “to sympathize with our weaknesses,” Who understands us and is able to help us. Our Lord has abundant graces for us: grace “to receive mercy,” grace “for timely help,” and many other graces we need to be closer to Him, because He “did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

“The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives.” (Gospel Acclamation)
