02-03-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 3, 2016
(St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr)
By trying to take possession of God’s people through a census, David recognized his error and pleaded for God’s mercy.  But there would be recompense.  And not only David, but the whole nation would have to pay.  When David saw the angel who was striking the people, he said to the LORD: “It is I who have sinned; it is I, the shepherd, who have done wrong.  But these are sheep; what have they done?  Punish me and my kindred.”  2_Sm_24:2,9-17

It’s called taking responsibility for our own actions.  Something that is difficult to find in today’s world.  We all make mistakes and our God is merciful.  But sometimes we just have to pay the piper.  And we don’t always recognize the harm our actions have on others.  Pray with me, beloved, that God will help us to recognize the paths to our errors, before we begin to walk down those paths.  And if we do err, help us Lord, to withstand, to endure whatever sacrifice we must offer to reconcile ourselves with You.  But please don’t punish Your sheep in the process!
