My Reflection for July 28, Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Luke11:1-13

My Reflection:
Can we measure God’s love and mercy for us? No we can’t because God’s love and mercy is infinite. It is not like the mercy and love that we have towards our fellowmen which is always bounded by time and space.

In our first reading for this Sunday we read about Abraham having a conversation with God. While he was conversing with God he tried to measure the love and mercy of God towards the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. He asked God if He would destroy that place, but the Lord God said no.

In our gospel we also read the same love and mercy of God coursed through a story told by Jesus. It was about a persistent friend who never gave-up to ask for three loaves of bread. By his persistence he exposed the infinite love and mercy of God towards him.

Jesus is forever merciful and loving to us, no matter who we are and no matter how grave our sins are. ...
