Lent, Day 39

"...he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, and not only for the nation, but also to gather into one the dispersed children of God." John 11:51b-52

We pray something called the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in the Catholic church. This is part of that prayer:

"Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world."

And because of His mercy...He died for all...

My offering to God: I will reflect on Christ's tremendous sacrifice of love for us.
