Mercy through Faith

October 11, 2016

And when he saw their faith he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.”
Luke 5:20

Jubilee Year of Mercy
We have all heard that the faith of a mustard seed can move mountains. It can also move the Heart of the Father to compassion. For the Apostle Thomas, he had to put his hand in the side of the Risen One to believe. What about you? What do you believe of the Father’s mercy and goodness?

Prayer for Divine Mercy
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

Mercy through Repentance

October 4, 2016

“Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
Acts 3:19

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Church teaches us that a contrite heart experiences “sorrow of the soul and detestation of the sin committed, together with the resolution not to sin again”. And when this contrition arises from a love by which God is loved above all else, it’s called “perfect” contrition.

May our hearts be set aflame with a love of God above all else. In this extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, let us pray for the grace to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with perfect contrition. May your next Confession, be your very best Confession.

The Scandal of Mercy at the Cross

September 27, 2016

“I will remember their sins and their misdeeds no more.”
Hebrews 10:17

Jubilee Year of Mercy
God wills to pour out his unfathomable Divine Mercy into your life and into all of your circumstances and all your relationships.  No matter what your past is, God has more in store for you.  He makes all things new.

We have 8 weeks left to enter in ever more deeply into this Divine Gift and share it with our family and friends.

Open Wide The Doors of Mercy

September 20, 2016

And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
Luke 23:34

Jubilee Year of Mercy
Pope Francis called for an “extraordinary” Jubilee Year of Mercy outside of the normal 25-year cycle.  If there is one thing every single person on the face of the earth shares in common, it’s that we are in desperate need of God’s Mercy!

We only have 9 weeks left until this extraordinary time of abundant grace comes to a close on Nov 20th.  Join us for this 9-week novena (one message a week) before the Year of Mercy ends!
