Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    

     On Divine Mercy Sunday, we celebrate the boundless mercy of God, who throughout history have forgiven those who have turned away. Jesus preached forgiveness extensively in his ministry, enshrining it in the prayer he taught his disciples. Now he tells his disciples,“Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them” (John 20:22–23). God’s mercy is both a gi of which we are unworthy and a model for us to follow.

     El Domingo de la Misericordia celebramos la inagotable misericordia de Dios, que a través de toda la historia ha perdonado a aquellos que se han alejado. Jesús predicó el perdón extensamente durante su ministerio, haciéndolo parte de la oración que le enseñó a sus discípulos. Ahora le dice a sus discípulos: “Reciban el Espíritu Santo. A los que les perdonen los pecados, les quedarán perdonados” (Juan 20:22–23). La misericordia de Dios es un don que no merecemos y a la vez un modelo a seguir. 

 

Quote for the Week... 

“When we encounter others, do we bring them the warmth of charity or do we stay closed up and warm only ourselves before our fireplace?”
