The time for mercy

“This time for conversion, this time for salvation, is the time for mercy. And so, let us say together in response to the suffering on so many faces: In your compassion and mercy, Lord, have pity on us ... cleanse us from our sins and create in us a pure heart, a new spirit (cf. Ps 51[50]:3, 4, 12).” — Pope Francis

Reflection: How do you typically respond to suffering? Imagine your heart and spirit as the living room where you meet Jesus and the world. What needs attention for you to be ready to receive God’s compassion and mercy? Where is the dust of sin covering the goodness for which you were created?
