Mercy is the Bridge to Paradise

And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you,
today you will be with me in Paradise.”
Luke 23:43

Jubilee Year of Mercy
Pope Francis began this Extraordinary Jubilee by letting us know that, “Mercy is the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness.”

Recall the inspired words of St. John Paul II, “We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us.”

God the Father loves you more intensely that you can ever imagine.

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.
