If you will to receive mercy, be merciful before He comes; forgive what has been done against you; give of your abundance. Of whose possessions do you give, if not from His? If you were to give of your own, it would be largess; but since you give of His, it is restitution. For what have you that you have not received?
After all, Christ comes at midnight. Let us all now forgive all who have offended us so that Christ can be merciful to us at His coming!
