Psalm 19:7, 12-14
7 The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. 12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. 13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. 14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
“This is my first experience of attending school. We had just immigrated to Brazil, so my understanding of the language was non-existent. To make matters worse, my parents enrolled me in a Catholic School, even though we had never stepped into a church before. I remember the utter confusion, trauma, and turmoil of those days. The only thing that helped me was a kind Korean boy who was tasked to help me. He translated what was being said, sat with me during lunch, and even told me when I should stand and sit during mass. He helped me make sense of this new world that I was being thrown into. In a similar manner, the Word of the Lord comes alongside us and gives us instruction on how to live lives that are pleasing to the Lord. Revealing the sins that lurk in our hearts, and cleansing us from both the hidden and the deliberate sins.” (GK)
