QUOTATION: God's Mercy

Know, then, that it is a need for Our Lord to pardon. His Heart is weighed down by the thought of the necessity of condemning us. He weeps over us, and when He forgives us. He is relieved and His Heart is dilated by mercy. If Our Lord could still suffer, it would be at seeing us despairing of His mercy and failing to ask pardon.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
