Do you know that the Lord is kind and merciful

*Do you know that the Lord is kind and merciful?*

_On the 3rd Sunday of Lent 2019, we chant that the Lord is kind and merciful. Why do we need to remember this important truth? Because our love for God is in direct proportion to our awareness of God’s love for us. In other words, the more you know of God’s mercies and kindnesses to you, the more you love Him._

*_The Catechism teaches us that: God made us to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him so that we can enjoy eternal life with Him forever._*

_It is therefore very important to remember all the time that the Lord is kind and merciful to you. When you want to remember key facts like doctor’s appointment, birth days, court dates, interview dates etc, what do you do? You write it down and place the note where you can see it easily and often._

*_You do exactly the same with sacred facts like our key Scripture for today. Do you have important landmarks in your life? All those key events where you have experienced God’s kindness and mercies. Scripture instructs us never to forget our landmarks. (Proverbs 22: 28). Now organize your landmarks into Timeline and “Write down the special dream [landmarks] on stone so that one may read it in a hurry.” (Cf. Habakkuk 2: 2). Do this and you will never forget that the Lord is kind and merciful._*
