We have been on a mission with Divine Mercy images to get them in just about every Church in our Diocese. Our mobil clinic will be serving in a new chapel that is called Divine Mercy, so we knew we had to get them the image. Even in the midst of this terrible virus the Lord’s work. Is being done.
We hung a new sign on our gate that tells about COVID-19 and how to stay safe.
At the mission, we are always learning something new. Today, it is learning how to sew face masks. Sr. Izzy is a good teacher!
We are in the upper room, and we sense the peace of Jesus here with us. In this, we are called to unlock those spaces that we try to hide, where we need faith and courage to keep moving forward. Jesus asks us to believe in this now, in what it is like. We are not so much to worry about the why but to remember that He is here in the now. Today we bring all people–family and friends, those we may not have yet met, doctors, nurses, necessary workers, children, the born and unborn, elders, presidents and leaders, priests and religious–and we place them all into the wounds of Jesus. We place them all into his Heart of mercy to be healed, transformed, and created into the new Easter message of life.
Today, we were blessed to have the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord! As we gathered, we remembered everyone this day who could not receive the Holy Eucharist and celebrate with their faith communities. Just as the stone was removed from the tomb, and the tomb was empty, let us not focus on the emptiness we may have felt these holy days; but let us place our faith in the one who promised that He will rise and give us all new life in Him. Our salvation is in Jesus who is risen and with us, and He will heal us and free as He promised. Remembering each of you to the Father in our daily prayers!
