I desire mercy, not sacrifice (Mt 9:13).
It is sad that so many people, Catholics included, only know or perceive the Heavenly Father as Justice. They miss out on one very simple fact: the Name of the Father is Mercy. It is His highest attribute and that is because He is both a Father and Infinite Love.
Related to the above is another simple fact: do not judge and you will not be judged by your own yardstick.
