On this Divine Mercy Sunday we celebrate two newly canonized saints John Paul II and John XXIII! On this second Sunday
of Easter we also open ourselves to the message communicated in the life of St. Faustina, 'Jesus I trust in you.' One of the sisters from her religious order encourages to gaze upon the Divine Mercy image and repeat in prayer 'trust.' Trust in
the risen Christ, in the forgiveness of sins and the forward motion of the Gospel message. Trust,trust, trust...
This week we hear in the Gospel of Thomas' doubts. Christ comes to him in spite of the locked room. Christ permeates all
barriers and lowers anything keeping us from the embrace of our Heavenly Father. Our new saints faced the trials of this life and cast their cares on the shoulders of the one who came to save us. One story of JP II while visiting Baltimore in USA-He
requested to view the chapel which was not scheduled on the formal agenda to the surprise of planners...Christ too appears at times when unexpected in the better or for worse hours. In those opportunities may we be open, receptive and loving to the will
of God who restores, unites, and makes disciples of the nations.
We are in the arms of our Father, surrounded by the communion of saints with a mother who never tires of speaking words of love into our ears 'trust, trust, trust' and into her son's -
your name. May we entrust families those today and those yet to be born to God's protection and mercy. All holy men and women, pray for us this Divine Mercy Sunday. Strengthen us in trusting in your risen glory, removing all strands of doubt,
and expanding our hearts of love.
How is this Sunday a gift to the start of your week?
