Thank you to all who worked so hard to make
our Holy Week liturgies so special. Each
liturgical celebration involved parishioners
using their gifts for the good of others:
whether it was the gift of music, decorations, or simple
hospitality, it was a wonderful example of what it means to be
a Christian. The Octave of Easter continues this weekend with
Divine Mercy Sunday. In an Angelus address of September
16, 2007 Pope Benedict highlighted the centrality of mercy in
the gospel message: “True religion thus consists in being
attuned to God’s Heart, ‘rich in mercy,’ which asks us to love
everyone, even those who are distant and our enemies
imitating the Heavenly Father who respects the freedom of
each one and draws everyone to himself with the invincible
power of his faithfulness.”
If we take this passage literally, the command to love
would also apply to those who, at the time, may appear to be
causing us harm. How is this possible? The Pope who urges us
to “never despair of God’s mercy” points to the example of
Judas as an instrument of Divine Mercy. The Pope explains:
“When we think of the negative role Judas played we must
consider it according to the lofty ways in which God leads
events. His betrayal led to the death of Jesus, who transformed
this tremendous torment into a space of salvific love by
consigning himself to the Father. The word ‘to betray’ is the
version of a Greek word that means ‘to consign.’ Sometimes
the subject is even God in person; it was he who for love
‘consigned’ Jesus for all of us. In his mysterious salvific plan,
God assumes Judas’ inexcusable gesture as the occasion for
the total gift of his Son for the redemption of the world.” Read
these words over, letting your mind soak up their meaning.
Pope Benedict is saying that Judas, in a mysterious way,
advanced God’s ultimate purpose, which was and is to save us
from our sins. There is no evil that the transforming,
redeeming power of God’s love cannot overcome.
Do you see how living this message can transform the
world? Divine Mercy puts a limit on evil in the person of Jesus
Christ. St. Faustina, the recipient of the messages of mercy
from Jesus Christ wrote the following words of Jesus in her
Diary. He says: “I have opened My heart as a living fountain
of mercy. Let all souls draw life from it. Let them approach
this sea of mercy with great trust (diary, 1520). I am offering
people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces
to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the
signature: ‘Jesus I trust in You.’ (327) The graces of My mercy
are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is-trust. The
more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.” Regarding the
graces to be received this weekend, Jesus Himself says in St.
Faustina’s Diary: “The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very
depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it be solemnly
celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not
have peace until it turns to the fount of My Mercy.”
Coinciding with the beatification of Pope John Paul II, this
Divine Mercy Sunday promises to be special. My prayer is that
our parish can turn the tidal wave of evil by extending the
message of mercy. People need to know Jesus Christ, People
need to know they are healed by His wounds, and people need
to know that His Heart is full of love and Mercy. May God be
Praised!

Second Sunday of Easter
Introduction-Liturgy of the Word:
One week after our Easter Sunday celebration, we return at
God’s invitation to continue our great Easter season of fifty
days. Let us follow the example of the early Christians, who
“devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the
communal life, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers.”
We who have not seen and yet believe in the Resurrection are
called to be signs of the Resurrection to others. May our
Eucharist today nourish us for that task.
