Mercy

I wish that I could better understand and explain God’s divine mercy. It is so deep and so vast that we are not able to fathom, or fully comprehend it, but it is freely given to us as a gift by Jesus’ suffering and death for us on the Cross. It is for this reason that it is fitting that Divine Mercy Sunday follow immediately after Easter. It is both a prayer of petition and a prayer of thanksgiving for which we say the Divine Mercy novena, starting on Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ suffering and death.
