Easter, Second Sunday (Divine Mercy) As members of the family of God, we all have a part to play. Pray about your gifts. One “chore” that belongs to the whole Church is God’s mission of Mercy. We bring that mercy by giving to the needy, through the Sacrament of Confession, and by accompanying those who are struggling to believe. The Apostles helped Thomas believe and how great was his faith.
This weekend is known as Divine Mercy Sunday because of a Polish sister who had visions of Jesus. Jesus told her, “I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for me. You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse yourself from it.” Let’s receive God’s mercy. Let’s bring others to God’s mercy.
Point to Discuss: Tell someone about the gifts you see in them. Encourage them to use those gifts for the Kingdom.
