03-28-2024 Sirach 28 V0506 Wrath cherish sins forgive who




The Book of Sirach Ch 28 v- Five thru Six

5 If a mere mortal cherishes wrath, who will forgive his sins? 6 Remember your last days and set enmity aside; remember death and decay, and cease from sin!


In the realm of mortals, the embrace of wrath is a seductive temptation that often clouds the judgment and distorts the soul. It is a force that stirs within, fueled by anger, resentment, and a thirst for vengeance. The mortal cherishes this wrath, holding onto it tightly as if it were a prized possession. It becomes a shield against perceived injustices, a weapon to wield against enemies, real or imagined. But in reality, it is a poison that slowly seeps into the heart, corroding the spirit and leading one down a dark and treacherous path.


Who will forgive these sins, these transgressions committed in the name of wrath? Is there redemption for those who have succumbed to its alluring embrace? The burden of guilt weighs heavy on the soul, a constant reminder of the harm inflicted upon others and oneself. The search for forgiveness becomes a desperate quest, a plea for absolution from a higher power or from those who have been wronged. But true forgiveness can only come from within, from a place of humility, remorse, and a genuine desire to change.


As mortals, we are reminded of our mortality, our finite existence in this world. Our days are numbered, our time on this earth fleeting. In the face of death, all grievances, all grudges, all hatreds pale in comparison to the inevitability of our own demise. It is a sobering thought, a stark reminder of the impermanence of life and the futility of holding onto anger and resentment.


So let us set aside amity, let us cast aside the shackles of wrath that bind us. Let us remember death and decay, the great equalizers that strip away all pretense and lay bare the truth of our existence. Let us cease from sin, from the destructive impulses that lead us astray and alienate us from our true selves. Let us seek forgiveness, not just from others, but from ourselves, and strive to live a life free from the burdens of wrath and the shadows of our past.


For in the end, it is not the sins we have committed that define us, but the willingness to acknowledge them, to learn from them, and to strive towards a better, more compassionate way of being. It is in this journey of self-discovery and redemption that we find the true meaning of forgiveness, and the path to a life lived in harmony with our fellow mortals in what we all call Salvation. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

03-28-2024 Sirach 28 v-0506


**As time ticks away**


Mirror, mirror on the wall

Reflecting mortal wrath so tall

Who will forgive these sins of mine

As time ticks away to the end of time


Remember the days of peace and love

Cast aside the anger, rise above

For death and decay await us all

Let go of sin before the final call


The mirror shows a face so cold

A reminder of the stories untold

But in the end, it’s not too late

To seek forgiveness, change your fate


So cherish love and God’s fate

Let go of strife and hate

Love life, Before it’s too late

Before it’s too late. Sin does state. Amen.
