Today is Divine Mercy Sunday! (April 23, 2017) The Sunday after Easter. Don’t let this beautiful opportunity pass you by. If you go to Confession, Communion and praying for the Intentions of the Pope (saying an Our Father and a Hail Mary), you will receive a plenary indulgence. This plenary indulgence rids us of our sins and also our punishment for those sins after our death. This is Jesus’ Mercy. Learn the small phrase, “Jesus, I trust in You.” It is in this trust we have for Him that He gives us His oceans of Mercy. We certainly don’t deserve His Mercy but He wants to step forward to us and give us that Mercy and help our unbelief. We can’t be like St. Thomas, needing to put our fingers in the nail holes before we believe. We need to have child-like hearts of trust and have faith in His power and Mercy. Even though the doors to our hearts are locked, Jesus will come in and love us.
