The heart of God

“This is the heart of God, the heart of a Father who loves and wants his children to live in goodness and in justice, and thus that they might live to the fullest and be happy. The heart of a Father who goes beyond our little concept of justice to open us to the limitless horizons of his mercy. His is the heart of a Father who does not treat us according to our sins nor repay us according to our faults, as the Psalm says (103[102]:9-10). His is precisely the heart of the Father whom we want to encounter when we go to the confessional.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: What does it mean to you that you may call upon God as Father? Are you living in the goodness, justice, fullness, and happiness for which God created you? How have you experienced the Father’s love and mercy through the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation?
