COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST:
This Sunday, as we conclude the eight-day solemnity of Easter and continue into the liturgical season of Easter, we celebrate the gift of divine mercy. It’s easy to forget sometimes that mercy is not something to which we have a right. The Lord has freely given it to us.
We should all make the commitment to spread mercy this week:
- – We all have relationships that are not exactly marked by mercy.
- – We all know of relationships that are marred by indifference and envy and resentment.
- – This week, why not take the first step towards reconciliation, with prayer, words, or actions? Why not follow in the footsteps of Christ, not waiting for others to take the first step, but doing so ourselves, just like Christ.
