Oh, Lord my God, give me the grace this day to know the depth of Your love for me, that will allow me to truly know the deep effect of my sins in my life and on others.

In today’s Scripture readings, You reveal Your love, mercy and compassion for us in our sinfulness - in the serpent on the cross, and in Jesus’ words, that we would know His love when he is to be crucified. Knowing I am loved will give me the courage to honestly look and know the depth of my sinfulness and be willing and able to seek Your divine mercy, and forgiveness in the sacrament of reconciliation. Assist me this day, oh Lord, to know the depth of Your love for me and have the courage to ask Your forgiveness for my sins. Amen.

Fr. Ignatius Kissel, OSM
