Niccolò e Giovanni, end of the XII century. Final Judgement. Vatican Museum, Art Gallery, © Musei Vaticani
God's mercy is an inexhaustible source
that Christ brought into the world
precisely with the desire,
the yearning to seek us,
to pursue us and to repeat to us:
I have loved you; I have come for you,
so that you might understand who you are
and how paralyzed and miserable you are.
But have faith, child, your misery is forgiven.
Therefore, today let us go to Jesus,
offering the Divine Sacrifice:
like the paralytic, we too will present ourselves before Him.
With all humility let us ask Him,
that trust in His omnipotence and goodness
might be renewed in our soul. Let everyone beg:
Lord, save me:
You alone have words of eternal life.
(Paul VI, Homily, 20 September 1964)
