The Lord is Kind and Merciful

This is the Responsorial Psalm for today:

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 8-9, 11-12

R. (8a) The Lord is kind and merciful.
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.

R. The Lord is kind and merciful.

He pardons all your iniquities,
he heals all your ills.
He redeems your life from destruction,
he crowns you with kindness and compassion.

R. The Lord is kind and merciful.


Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
He will not always chide,
nor does he keep his wrath forever.

R. The Lord is kind and merciful.

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west,
so far has he put our transgressions from us.

R. The Lord is kind and merciful.


It is good to remember that the Lord is kind and merciful. Yes, God holds us to a high standard. God wants us to love our neighbor and follow the commandments, but when we fail, He is always ready to forgive us. The Lord is kind and merciful. We must never forget that. There is nothing that we have done that is so bad that God won't forgive us if we are truly sorry.
