Divine Mercy Sunday

Jesus is risen! The disciples in the Gospel of John that we read on this Divine Mercy Sunday have locked themselves behind closed doors for fear that the same thing that happened to Jesus will now happen to them. Their fear is countered by Jesus suddenly appearing in their midst. No attention is given as to how Jesus did this.

At first, this only increases the fear of the disciples, and they pay no attention to what Jesus says regarding peace. However, once he shows his hands and his side, they are able to grasp the connection between the earthly and the risen Christ and they rejoice. They are comforted and encouraged by the gift of peace that Jesus gives them.

This Devine Mercy Sunday we are reminded again of God's plan for all of us. That plan is that we should all be saved by the blood of Jesus Christ shed for us in His one perfect sacrifice on the Altar of the Cross. We rejoice in this mercy and the gift of faith we are given by the Holy Spirit.

  Happy Easter,       
Father Bill Kraynak

Stewardship Thought
April 22, 2018 - "I am the good shepherd...and I lay down my life for the sheep...and they will heed my voice."  -- John 10:14-16

When you pray, do you only ask Jesus for the things that you want? How do you listen for His response? Usually, the answer is in "quiet whispers", so take time everyday, in silence, to actively listen for His response.
