“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Sirach 15:25-26,29

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Come to the Lord, and leave your sin behind.

Pray sincerely that He will help you live a better life.

Return to the Most High and turn away from sin.

.

How great is the Lord’s merciful forgiveness

of those who turn to Him!

.

– Sirach 15:25-26,29 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

God is our ultimate Judge,

and we must render an account to our Creator,

not just as regards our external actions

but even with regards to our innermost thoughts.

.

As we contemplate on God’s infinite mercy,

and on His great love for us,

the decision to change our way of life

and conform to His commandments,

becomes clear

…and urgent.

.

When we convert to God

and leave our old self behind,

we start to truly live again

and to look beyond this existence

– to everlasting life in His glorious Presence.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“To choose deliberately – that is, both knowing it and willing it –

something gravely contrary to the divine law and to the ultimate end of man

is to commit a mortal sin.

.

This destroys in us the charity without which eternal beatitude is impossible.

Unrepented, it brings eternal death.”

.

– Catechism of the Catholic Church – CCC 1874.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

I love You, Lord. Forgive me, have mercy on me and renew me.
