God, being rich in mercy, through the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our sins, brought us to life with Christ.
Your mercy extends over all that lives on earth,
because you despise nothing of what you have created.
You cause the sun to rise and the rain to fall
both on those who revere you and on those who don't.
But the grace of your mercy is only for those who fear you,
as it is written.
And you find your delight only in those
who like you, show mercy,
and it is only them that you embrace as your children.
St George Preca
