Day 246: Mercy and the Mystery of Sin (1846-1853)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we pray to you. We ask that you please receive our thanksgiving, receive our praise today. And Father we also ask that in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, we ask that you please grant us a heart that is open, a mind that is open. Grant us that gift of docility that you can teach us. And we can not just hear your words-hear the words of your teaching, but also to receive them. Help us to truly receive what it is you want to reveal to us today. The mystery of mercy and the mystery of iniquity, the mystery of sin. Let us in our hearts be convicted by sin. And let us in our hearts be convicted by your mercy. We ask all of this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
