Liturgical day: Monday 2nd of Lent

Gospel text (Lk 6,36-38): Jesus said to his disciples, «Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Don't be a judge of others and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven». Jesus said to his disciples, «Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Don't be a judge of others and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven; give and it will be given to you, and you will receive in your sack good measure, pressed down, full and running over. For the measure you give will be the measure you receive back».

Today and in our times, let us not forget, Jesus Christ keeps walking uphill towards Jerusalem, where he will give His life for our Salvation. And, yet again, He reminds us about something very important: “Be compassionate”, be merciful, be patient… Because this is the way God is, because Love is this. There is no revengeful love, no ever-criticizing love, no intemperate love…

-God is like this and live is like this. “(…) by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you”. He who cannot forgive does not let others forgive him either!
