Today is Divine Mercy Sunday
Not that we don't constantly contemplate God's mercy in sending Jesus to us. We do. But the picture, with the words "Jesus, I Trust In You" reminds us to trust in His mercy.
EWTN's website gives this description:
The message of mercy is that God loves us — all of us —
no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that
His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon
Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to
others. Thus, all will come to share His joy. It is a message
we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC.
A — Ask for His Mercy.
B — Be merciful.
C — Completely trust in Jesus.
There are plenty of websites that give a fuller explanation of the meaning of today, and the devotion to Divine Mercy. I just thought I would share with my friends what I am celebrating today: Divine Mercy, and knowing that I can trust in Jesus.
