The angels standing before the throne of God veil their faces and, filled with wonder and admiration at the sight of God’s infinite holiness, cry aloud without ceasing “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.” For us poor sinners here below, our faith should produce the same effect, but differently. Gazing in spirit on this infinite sanctity, we should cry from the bottom of our hearts “Mercy, mercy, mercy!” This is our Sanctus, and the Church adopts this in her daily cry, Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison. I found this thought of honoring God’s sanctity, by united with the angels as they cry Sanctus, in crying for mercy, very fruitful. As their cry is eternal, so should my cry for mercy never cease in this life.Blessed Columba Marmion
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!
