From the Book of Sirach at Today's Mass



To the penitent God provides a way back, he encourages those who are losing hope and has chosen for them the lot of truth.Return to him and give up sin, pray to the LORD and make your offenses few. Turn again to the Most High and away from your sin, hate intensely what he loathes, and know the justice and judgments of God, Stand firm in the way set before you, in prayer to the Most High God. (...) How great the mercy of the LORD, his forgiveness of those who return to him!
