In the Penitential Rite options in our liturgy, we may say or sing: “Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Kyrie Eleison.” Or, Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy. We do this not only in a penitential sense; but, to receive life and refreshment for our weary souls.
We are asking the Lord of Life and Love to simply “look kindly upon me.” We can look at ourselves these days in the mirror and ask, “Do I have the same mercy for others that I beg from God?” Mercy is a wonderful gift to receive but a more wonderful to GIVE away.
Who needs your mercy today?
Be assured of our prayers for you each day as we continue our journey together and apart.
