After having thematized in these last two daily reflections the goodness of our Heavenly Father and His desire to forgive even our most atrocious sins, I would like to simply “let” the Father Himself speak today, by quoting two passages from the Message to Mother Eugenia Ravasio on this subject.

My intention is to give encouragement to each person. Whatever the situation in which we find ourselves, we can always turn to our loving Father. We must never let ourselves be carried away by despair! Each person, having received the Lord’s forgiveness, can begin to “lay up treasures in heaven” (Mt 6:20), to gather gold for the Kingdom of God.

“Listen, My children, let us make a comparison, and you will be assured of My love. For Me, your sins are like iron, and your acts of love like gold. If you gave Me a thousand pounds of iron, it would not be like giving Me just ten pounds of gold! In other words, with just a little love, great iniquities can be expiated.

This, then, is one very light-hearted way of looking at My judgment of My children, men, all of them, without exception. You must come to Me. I am so close to you! You must love Me and honour Me so that you will not be judged, or rather, that you will be judged with infinitely merciful love” (Message of the Father to Sister Eugenia Ravasio).
