God is rich in mercy . . .

I often pray over the the passage of St. Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 2:4-10, the second reading for the Fourth Sunday of Lent. This is also Laetare Sunday as the opening Antiphon begins: "Rejoice, Jerusalem, and all who love her.
Be joyful, all who were in mourning;
Exult and be satisfied at her consoling breast."

Paul tells us that "God is rich in mercy, because of the great love He had for us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, brought us to life with Christ-- by grace you have been saved-- raised us up with him....
It is so true that God loves each of us unconditionally! That gives me joy! I rejoice in His love for me, for you, for each...

We had Pat's funeral yesterday and it was beautiful! Then we had a sharing of memories and Pat's joy, gratitude, and holiness came forth from so many recounting memories of Pat.
