Here’s my homily from this morning. Sometimes we complain to God in our prayers. As we see in the first reading, God has infinitely more of a reason to complain about us, but His mercy never fails.
We stand in utter need of God’s mercy. As we’re told in the first reading from Ezekiel, in a certain way, God depends on our mercy, too. God wants us all to be saved, but He won’t force it. It’s a gift. The conversation of heart necessary to accept God’s gift depends somewhat on us.
