Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Divine Mercy Sunday

We can look at Thomas as the “doubting Thomas,” the
one would not believe unless he could see, or we can look at
him as the “desirous Thomas,” the one who really wanted to see
the Lord. Thomas wanted the same experience as the other
Apostles and he wanted to touch the Lord Jesus in order that he
could know that Jesus was really alive. We need to have that
same desire to see Jesus and know that He is risen and is in our
A way that helps us to know Jesus in our lives is to do
what the early Christians did. They joined together in prayer
and the Lord revealed Himself to them in their communal
prayer life. As we gather in prayer during the celebration of the
Eucharist, we can expect that the Lord will reveal Himself to
us. As we share our time, talent, and treasure with one another,
as the early Christians did, the Lord will be with us also.
It is the ninth day since Good Friday when Jesus died
for our sins. It is Divine Mercy Sunday. Accept the ocean of
mercy that Jesus has for us.
