Grace and Peace unto you, Brothers and Sisters,
May we each of us find in the words of Lamentations 3:22-23 cause for our own love and compassion toward all peoples; "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." As God shared with us the ultimate act of compassion in sacrificing His only Son, the Beloved, so too are we to know selfless love toward all around us. In reaching out to lift up those less fortunate, we ourselves become the hands of the Father acting for the good of all. Trust that in giving of yourself without measure, God's Mercy and Compassion spills forth into the world through you. May our acts of faith and our prayers of devotion ever exalt the Lord, our God.
