“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 32:1-3,5,7-8

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Happy are those whose sins are forgiven,

whose wrongs are pardoned.

Happy is the one whom the Lord does not accuse of doing wrong

and who is free from all deceit.

.

When I did not confess my sins,

I was worn out from crying all day long.

.

Then I confessed my sins to You;

I did not conceal my wrongdoings.

I decided to confess them to You,

and You forgave all my sins.

.

You are my hiding place;
You will save me from trouble.
I sing aloud of Your salvation,
because You protect me.

.

The Lord says, “I will teach you the way you should go;
I will instruct you and advise you.”

.

– Psalm 32:1-3,5,7-8 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

The sins we commit distance us from God,

and, if they are not humbly confessed, trusting in the divine mercy,

they will finally bring about the death of the soul.

.

Jesus became one like us to teach us and to show us the way.

Then, out of His great love for us, He suffered and died for us

with the aim of obtaining reconciliation, forgiveness and salvation for us.

Through His resurrection, He then opened the gates of His heavenly Kingdom for those who choose to follow Him and His example.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Blessed Virgin Mother of God, preserved from every stain of sin,

pray for us and help us to avoid sin

and lead us to the Sacrament of Confession and Forgiveness

that we may reconcile ourselves with Your Son, Our Lord and Saviour.

Amen.
