«But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness…»
-Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel
Comment from our readers…
What a consolation! This phrase gives me so much hope. I am always surprised to discover what God has in store for me. I feel as though he knows me very intimately, "more intimate to me than I am to myself", as saint Augustine would say. Patiently, He "restores" me, He renews me.
I particularly like to pray bathed by the silence of the morning, when the day is "new". I feel I can then gather the grace specific to that day, like the manna in the desert.
