Mercy Now More Than Ever

Lectio

Do not complain, brothers and sisters, about one another, that you may not be judged. Behold, the Judge is standing before the gates. Take as an example of hardship and patience, brothers and sisters, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of the perseverance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, because the Lord is compassionate and merciful. But above, my brothers and sisters, do not swear either by heaven or by the earth or with any other oath, but let your “Yes” mean “Yes” and your “No” mean “No” that you may not incur condemnation. (James 5: 9–12)

Contemplatio: 

May we be the compassion and mercy of our God in our world today.
