Homily for Trinity 4
The Fourth Sunday after Trinity draws our attention to mercy, specifically Jesus exhorting His followers to "Be merciful" even as their heavenly Father is merciful. Since we have been shown great mercy, we get to live in and show mercy to those around us. How did St. John say it? "We love because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19).
