“The quality of mercy is not strained: It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath. It is twice blest: It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.”  (William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice)
 
Dear Friends,
 
When Jesus appears after the Resurrection, the first word is PEACE and and the first action is pointing to his wounds. On this Divine Mercy Sunday, both word and action give wonderful witness that the divine plan for broken humanity is mercy.
 
How can we not acknowledge after the kind of year we have had that healing mercy is absolutely necessary, not only in the many ways we need to be healed, but also in the many ways we are called to be healers. The great spiritual writer Henri Nouwen wrote a powerful book called The Wounded Healer, a wonderful challenge to all of us, wounded each in our own way, but empowered by Christ to bring amazing healing.
 
Have a blessed healing week—both in word and action.
 
Blessed be the Wounded Healer!
 
Sincerely, with love,
Fr. Tim
Video Mass for Sunday, April 11th. Here is the recorded Mass for this upcoming Sunday (Divine Mercy Sunday). We provide a worship aid to help you better enter into the prayer of the Mass. Please know that we will continue these recorded Masses indefinitely. We are so grateful to DV Productions, our Liturgists Mary Robertson and Meggie Moyer, and our cantor Amy Sobczak for their efforts in making our prayer as beautiful as possible.
