Second Sunday of Easter

Divine Mercy Sunday

 

                  As if the Resurrection of our Lord and His victory over sin and death were not enough, the Church proclaims: but wait, there's more! This Second Sunday of Easter is celebrated as Divine Mercy Sunday! The culmination of the Easter octave rests in Mercy, personified in Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God Who's mercy endures forever as we sing in our psalm today. All of us require Divine Mercy and would in fact die without it. For as St. John Paul II put it, mercy is love's second name (Dives in Misericordia 1980). As we cast our sin and weakness into the almost-reckless Mercy of God, we live and breathe in a culture seemingly incapable of identifying guilt: A college basketball player publicly hurls an ugly racial slur (with a twist) at his victorious opponent (talk about March Madness), a publication prints as fact a completely fabricated story of sexual violence, and a likely Presidential candidate evades accountability in a brazen public records scandal. In each of these cases, the parties simply could not admit that their actions were wrong. I guess shamelessness means never having to say you're sorry. Absent guilt, contrition is not needed. Without contrition, Mercy is not applicable. May we never dismiss our most dire need. Receive this Divine Mercy freely offered in the sacraments and in the blood and water flowing from Jesus' pierced side. We all have a hand in that Wound, in which is found our Redemption.

 

God Bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
