The Mercy That Brings Us Peace (#620, Divine Mercy)

Fr. Joel Homilies 2 Comments

Divine Mercy Sunday (2nd Sunday of Easter) · Finally we get to see the risen Jesus. He offers us the gift of peace, a peace that comes from reconciliation with the Father. Jesus gives Thomas a second chance. If you are struggling with belief, that’s OK. Just don’t give up asking and looking. Thomas goes as far as India helping those who have not seen to believe. He received mercy; he shares mercy. Pope John Paul II brought mercy to the world. He offered mercy to his assassin. Let the risen Jesus meet you and offer you mercy and peace.

Point to Ponder: Where did you see the Risen Jesus this past week?

Point to Discuss: How could mercy bring greater peace to this world? Talk to a friend about ways you could offer mercy right where you live and work.

    I love the whole story of DivineMercy. I just finished reading a great book published in February by Fr. Michael Gaitley. 33 Days to Merciful Love, a Do-It-Yourself Retrear in preparation for Consecration to Divine Mercy. It is a wonderful way to meet Our Lord through St. Therese of Lisieux and some of St. Faustinas writings. It’s perfect for the Year of Mercy
