OF ONE HEART AND MIND— Reading about the faith of the early
Christian believers can be a real inspiration to those of us who have
been Christians for a long time, as well as for those who are newly
baptized. Can you imagine people of this world being “of one heart and
mind” as was the first community of
believers? Today’s First Letter of
John seems to hold the key to how this can be accomplished. Keeping
God’s commandments and loving all of God’s children seems to be the
start of being “of one heart and mind.” We live in a world that stresses
differences—differences among religions, among races, between
genders, and among economic classes. Today we are summoned to
focus on what we all share in common on this fragile planet of ours.

DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY, today, April 12th - God wants us to
receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others and also
wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does
to us. Join us as we gather in celebration of the abundant mercy
of Jesus our Saviour at 3:00 p.m. at Holy Family Church.
