Deus dives in misericordia (Eph 2:4).

God who is rich in mercy.

All of us commit sins. As human beings we are very weak and often offend our God. Nonetheless, our Father in Heaven is very merciful  and ready to forgive us. He is not like us who take offence and do remember the errors of our neighbours.We do so and at the same time follow the wishes of the flesh and its impulses. In such a way, we are hypocrites and by nature children of wrath. However, our God is rich in mercy and loves us very much. For that reason, Jesus Christ came to the world and brought us to life again. He does the same in the holy sacraments of the Church and by grace we are being saved. Moreover, he raises us up from our low desires and wants us to be seated with him in Heaven. The reason is that we are created in Christ Jesus for the good works and belong to him. Further, we are to sing joyfully to the Lord and serve him with gladness. Since it is our vocation to be holy and blameless in God's sight. Finally, we are to abide with him in the Kingdom of Heaven forever and ever. Amen.
