God’s Everlasting Love

Oh, faithful and forgiving God, today’s scripture readings at Mass remind me of your faithful and everlasting love. Give me the grace today to know You deeply as the God who allows suffering, spiritual and physical, in order to bring me back to You. You clearly tell me through scripture that because of my guilt and numerous sins, You allow me to know the pain, yet You assure me of bringing me fully back to You, fully forgiven and sharing Your divine mercy and love. Give me the grace today never to forget your promise of full restoration in Your love. I ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Fr. Ignatius Kissel, OSM
