March 11. Therese was thinking, “There is a lot about laws and rules in the Old Testament isn’t there, especially the book of Leviticus? But maybe that is suitable for Lent to get us to do some looking into our own sins. How many grudges do I bear and how many grudges are against those close to me? Sometimes recognising their rights when I don’t agree is the hardest thing of all. I wonder why?
You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people but you shall love your neighbour as yourself. Lev 19:11-18.
Pope Francis: We cannot forget that mercy is not only the working of the Father, it becomes a criterion for knowing who his true children are. We are called to show mercy because mercy was first shown to us. AL 310
