Mercy Everything proceeds out of God's mercy

Mercy
Everything proceeds out of God's mercy

There is a common misconception concerning the word "mercy", used throughout the liturgical services of the Church, as well as our private prayers, and the Jesus Prayer. It is a given that we are all sinners, but the asking for God's mercy is not limited to asking His forgiveness, or begging God to overlook our sinfulness.   

When we pray forty Lord have mercies, we are recognizing that EVERYTHING proceeds out of God's mercy. The air we breath, the health we enjoy, the food on our table, the water in our tap, the friendships we treasure, our family, and everything good, flows out upon us through God's mercy.
Lord Jesus Christ have mercy.

With love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
