We had quite a storm yesterday in the San Diego area. After the rain, the skies cleared, the air freshened and everything cleansed...just as it is with God's mercy.
We are all sinners, and those sins cause a storm in our lives. Humbly admitting our faults to God and asking for His mercy gives way to absolution. Like the air after yesterday's storm ... the stain of sin is cleansed and we are renewed.
Have a Blessed Day!
