This weekend we observe the Sunday of Divine Mercy. We are truly in the midst of the Easter Season. We have the ability to reflect on the true meaning of Easter and the Resurrection of Christ, and how this reality has changed history and our own lives.
Sometimes we can focus so much on the death of Jesus on the cross, we can lose sight of the entire event. The Divine Mercy devotion, revealed to St. Faustina Kowalaska, is a reminder to us of the grace and forgiveness that Jesus has brought into the world. We also know that the promise of the Resurrection is a personal one for us! Jesus reaches out to everyone with mercy and compassion. All we need to do is open our hearts to that love, and know His divine friendship and peace.
St. Sister Faustina wrote this, “Act in such a way that all those who come in contact with you will go away joyful. Sow happiness about you because you have received much from God; give then generously to others. They should take leave of you with their hearts filled with joy.”
What a wonderful quote for this Sunday of Divine Mercy weekend!
