Whenever I read these words, “The Lord Is Faithful In All His Words” which comes from today’s Responsorial Psalm 145, my first thought is I am not faithful. In my journey through life I have made so many mistakes, taken so many people for granted and selfishly put me first above others. But, because God is faithful, He tells and shows us through scripture that He, though almighty and powerful, is a very loving and merciful God.
There is still hope for me and all, that through His grace, He will make us strong enough to walk the straight and narrow path with Him, and one day enter through the narrow gate that he speaks about in today’s Gospel from Luke 13:22-30. May God have mercy on us all.
