Taste and See: The real thing

The Lord is compassion and love.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord
all my being, bless his holy name.
My soul, give thanks to the Lord
and never forget all his blessings.

The Lord is compassion and love.

It is he who forgives all your guilt,
who heals every one of your ills,
who redeems your life from the grave,
who crowns you with love and compassion,

The Lord is compassion and love.

The Lord does deeds of justice,
gives judgement for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses
and his deeds to Israel’s sons.

The Lord is compassion and love.

The Lord is compassion and love,
slow to anger and rich in mercy.
For as the heavens are high above the earth
so strong is his love for those who fear him.

The Lord is compassion and love.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 102(103):1-4,6-8,11

The Lord IS compassion and love.

We might try to be likewise, but what are we, in fact, right here, right now.

We are called to that sort of honesty about ourselves always and everywhere, but especially during Lent.

As we prepare (?) for our Lenten confession, where are we falling short? For what are we striving and why?
