March 14, 2015 (Hosea 6:1-6)

“It is love that I desire, not sacrifice.” Jesus quotes these words during His public ministry and often tells parables that illustrate what he means (or the opposite). In the latter parables He shows how we can get so “puffed up” that we lose who we are. “O God, be merciful to me a sinner.” For example, we’re reaching the half-way point of Lent. Are we proud about our accomplishments so far or are we aware of how short we come up to what Jesus wants us to be no matter how “successful” we have been with our Lenten resolutions? “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.”
