Message of the Week

Blessed Are Those
Who Have Not Seen and Have Believed

Divine Mercy Sunday
  • Jesus appears to the apostles to assure them that He has indeed risen from the dead.
  • He knows of their angst and sadness about His death.
  • He wants them to know about the peace and strength He brings with His Resurrection.
  • He wants them to know that He is truly the Son of God.
  • But Thomas, who had not been present when Jesus first appeared, would not believe.
  • Jesus returned when Thomas was present and presented his wounds for Thomas’ inspection.
  • Who then finally believed?
  • How much like Thomas are we, always needing proof – a sign?
  • Trust and faith are what will bring us comfort and peace.
  • Divine Mercy comes to those who trust and accept what Jesus says on faith.
  • Can we get beyond our need for proof and receive all the grace Jesus has to offer us?
