St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

To Love the Unlovable. To Pardon the Unpardonable. G.K. Chesterton

Francesco de Zurbaran - "Christ on the Cross"
"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable."
G.K. Chesterton

This is the Divine Mercy of God.
For though we are unlovable, 
we are loved.
For though we are unpardonable,
we are pardoned.
Therefore, we are entrusted to love  all
 forgive all.
This is
 Divine Mercy.
To those whom we believe are unlovable,
we must awaken love in our hearts for them.
Through this love for the 
we realize that they are lovable in God's eyes.
(And, they are.)
To those whom we believe are unpardonable,
we must pardon,
because we are all unpardonable but for the love of God.
(And we are.)
The Mercy of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
is the gift of love and forgiveness intertwining so that one cannot exist without the other
and remembering that if 
God ceased to love us,
we would not be,
but God chooses to love us,
He chooses to forgive us,
His Mercy flows out to humanity
who can accept or reject this gift.
Divine Mercy!
Divine Love!
