My Dear People,

Investing in Divine Mercy

The recent flooding of the local rivers has been very sobering to say the least. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have lost family members, homes, and properties. It is a stark reminder that life is very short. We can lose all that we have and own, literally within hours. This teaches us the value of truly investing ourselves in the gifts that last into eternity.

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday. Mercy is a spiritual investment that goes forward into eternity. When we are merciful, we are investing in our spiritual portfolio. These are intangible gifts that prepare us for everlasting life. The material things of this world will pass away, but the things of the next world last forever. Be wise, be smart. Invest yourselves and your families in the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ. No one can steal this gift from you; not even the evil one. Take time to pray and ask for the plenary indulgence associated with Divine Mercy Sunday. On the day of your judgment before Our Lord Jesus Christ, you will be glad that you did so. Come spend and hour with Our Lord this Sunday. Rejoice and be glad.

May we always be ready to invest in the Divine Mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark
