Fr. Joel’s Homily for April 19

Fr. Joel Homilies

East2 – The tender Mercy of our God
Easter, Divine Mercy Sunday. Jesus appears to his scared, guilty Apostles and says, “Peace be with you.” He has mercy on them. And furthermore, he wants them to pass his mercy on to others: “Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,” he says. The Apostles exercise this mercy by welcoming Thomas back into the community, and we see this mercy in the generosity of the first Christians. Where do you have guilt, anger or resentment? Bring it into the warmth of God’s mercy so that you can experience his Peace. (19 Apr. 2009)
