Alleluia! Alleluia! In the spirit of St. Augustine, let us consider the Gospel for Divine Mercy Sunday as we continue to celebrate the Easter season. The Gospel opens with a picture of us, Christ’s disciples: afraid, doubting, locked up. Oftentimes, like the disciples in the Gospel, I find it difficult to understand the significance and beauty of Christ’s Death and Resurrection. I am happy on Easter Sunday, but am not sure how to celebrate the other 50 days of Easter. In that doubt and confusion, I have a tendency to turn inwards in my faith. For Jesus, this must make very little sense. However, in His infinite and compassionate mercy, He comes to His disciples and simply offers us peace. As we approach Divine Mercy Sunday, may we be aware of the simplicity and necessity of Christ’s peace, which is given to us as freely as each breath we take.
