Reflection for April 23, 2017

A whole ocean of graces

Inconceivable. Lately, a lot of the news seems inconceivable. If the news has you feeling a bit dismayed, take some time and consider something far more uplifting  -- Christ’s inconceivable mercy.

Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday, a day in which we reflect on Jesus’ message: “Tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy.” This message was among many He gave to St. Faustina Kowalski (1905-1938) in a series of apparitions. Among them were, “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls" and "I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of My mercy.”

The only way to know mercy is to know suffering. And then, not only to know the suffering, but to let the suffering speak to you in such a way that it is, itself, transformed into mercy.
