May we find forgiveness, healing, and peace in God's Divine Mercy.


Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be


As we prepare for the Sunday of Divine Mercy this weekend, we can reflect upon the mercy Christ shows us in His suffering, death, and Resurrection. By our sin, we distance or cut ourselves off from the life of God’s grace within us. But rather than leave us among the dead, our God wants to wipe away our sins and welcome us in friendship.
His forgiveness, which brings us to life in Him, is possible in the Sacrament of Reconciliation because He first offered Himself for our sake. Trusting in God’s mercy and the power of the Resurrection, let us ask His forgiveness for the times we have failed to respect one another or to cherish His gift of life. 

Jesus’s Passion and death are not the end; they point to the joy of the Resurrection. 

“By his wounds, we were healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
