“At some time in our lives we are all faced with the experience of error and sin, and it is the Holy Spirit who helps us not to succumb, and enables us to grasp and live fully the meaning of Jesus’s words: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”  The commandments are not given to us as a kind of mirror in which to see the reflection of our miseries and inconsistencies.  No, the Word of God is given to us as the Word of life, which transforms, which renews, which does not judge to condemn, but heals and has forgiveness as its end. A Word that is light for our steps. This is the Holy Spirit, the Gift of God’s love that descends into the heart of the Christian. It is the Spirit who guides us, enlightens us, strengthens us so that we may go forward in life even through adversity and difficulty, joys and sorrows, remaining on the path of Jesus.”

Psalm 138

Your right hand saves me, O Lord.

I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
for you have heard the words of my mouth;
in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple,
and give thanks to your name.

Your right hand saves me, O Lord.

Because of your kindness and your truth,
you have made great above all things
your name and your promise.
When I called, you answered me;
you built up strength within me.

Your right hand saves me, O Lord.

Your right hand saves me.
The LORD will complete what he has done for me;
your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
forsake not the work of your hands.

Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
