Divine Mercy Sunday-April 3, 2016

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday!

The second Sunday of Easter presents observance of Divine Mercy. Traveling to Stockbridge, MA and the National Shrine of Divine Mercy affords contemplation on the times mercy has been extended, which is as often as we are opened to receive it!  When was your last life changing confession?  It may be when we have the courage to go to the root.  At a recent penance service the priests also confessed with the other confessors present.  Have you ever been blessed to witness a priest entering the tribunal of mercy?  It is powerful! How do we end up further than necessary from mercy?  We may become less pliable in the hands of the potter.  We know not ththe hour or day we will be called home.  Get up and go to confession and emerge as fresh a a new fallen spring snow! On a sick call the person asked:  " Is there a priest available to hear my confession?" Such beautiful words!  But laity, we too have a role in extending words of mercy, acts of mercy and love itself.  This Sunday let us pray for the grace to extend our heart, given to us by God to care for one another.  May an ocean of mercy heal the world!

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
