Second Sunday of Easter – (B) Divine Mercy Sunday (Year of St. Joseph)
Words from Canon Niall -
Peter and Paul went to Greece and Rome. Mark went to Egypt and Syria. Thomas made his way as far as India. They all shared the Gospel message of Divine Mercy in the forgiveness and peace that the Risen Lord breathed on them. They were re-created and given a new life to face their personal fears in the face of much opposition and indifference. There is an apt comment by St. Gregory the Great (540 – 604) about Thomas: ‘His skepticism was more advantageous to us than the faith of the disciple who believed’. It is a reminder to us that we do not learn the truth as isolated individuals. Thomas teaches us to become a Church community that has honest about our doubts.
Please continue with prayers for all who are part of the NHS and that the Lord gives them protection and safety with the demands on their dedication and healing. See Pope Francis’ Rosary Prayers for Protection from Coronavirus
