Divine Pity and Human Piety

The Heavenly Father's pity is met in gratitude by our piety, which is defined for us by the Catechism:

“Respect for parents (filial piety) derives from gratitude toward those who, by the gift of life, their love and their work, have brought their children into the world and enabled them to grow in stature, wisdom, and grace...." CCC 2215

Meeting Christ in the Liturgy offers a reflection for The Eleventh Sunday of Ordinary Time.
