Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint Alphonsus Liguori
One Scarred Hand to the Other
“How good of You to come! Truly, You do not despise me. Because I am a sinner, You double Your strength in me. What goodness, what limitless compassion You have for a repentant sinner.” (Elizabeth) (November 22, 1962)
Today’s Readings: As far as the east is from the west, so far has he put our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. (Psalm 103)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, it is difficult to take in sometimes Your Mercy and Your Compassion. How far is it really from the East to the West? Because all we see are our faults, failings, and sins. Somehow, we are never going to measure up we think. The really great news, the best news ever is that the work has already been done! You love us and forgive everything inside of us when we repent- truly Your Ocean of Mercy drowns all of it if we ask forgiveness. You especially come to meet us and to heal us in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. So, what are we waiting for- how far is it from the East to the West. One scarred hand to the other!
