“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” Luke 6:36
  • Daniel 9:4-10
  • Psalm 79:8-9, 11, 13
  • Luke 6:36-38

The first reading paints a beautiful image of a true follower of Jesus. As baptized people we need to be aware that in our human nature we are prone to sin. Can we find anyone without sin? Therefore we should deal with the truth of our hearts and give it to the Lord Jesus. There are no shortcuts to this journey that the Lord Jesus has called us to. We are certainly saved people because of the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. But we need to be always mindful of our salvation. The grace of God works powerfully in us, specially when we are broken and fallen. The Lord Jesus and the choirs of angels in heaven rejoice when we return to God. The Gospel proclamation gives an important advice: “Judge not and we will not be judged”. In the depth of our inner being we have our hidden sins, which at times, we ourselves are unaware of. We are responsible for our actions, we cannot blame anyone else. Therefore when we judge we are actually pushing ourselves to be judged.

Prayer: Abba Father, let me not judge others, as I desire to not be judged by others. Amen.
