Thank you all so much for taking part in our Holy Week Liturgies and filling our church repeatedly over the past couple weeks. Your presence brings so much to our celebrations. As I mentioned in my homily last week, I encourage you to invite your friends or neighbors who may not have ever attended Holy Thursday, Good Friday or the Easter Vigil, to come and see in the future. For many people, it has been a pivotal moment in their lives and in their relationship with our Lord.
This weekend is a special one because it has been designated as Divine Mercy Sunday, where people around the world celebrate the great love and mercy of our Lord as revealed to Saint Faustina Kowalska. It was on this Sunday, a year ago that Pope John Paul II was beatified at a Mass in Rome where over one million pilgrims attended from all around the world.
Today, I encourage you to pray the Divine Mercy devotional prayer or to make an extra effort to pray for someone else this day and give their intentions to our merciful Lord.
God bless you,
