A Note From Your Deacon:

I love the season of Easter! Easter cannot be remembered only for a day.  It is so important that there are 50 days in the Easter season, ending with the feast of Pentecost.  We first celebrate the Octave of Easter, eight days of special celebration of the resurrection of Christ.  Each day of the Octave is ranked as a Solemnity in the Church’s liturgical calendar, the highest ranking of liturgical feasts. At Masses during the Octave of Easter, as on Sundays, the Gloria, is recited or sung. And at the end of each Mass of the Octave, the double Alleluia is sung at the dismissal.  The Gospel readings at Masses during the Octave of Easter include passages from the Gospels that relate various appearances of the Risen Jesus. Reflecting on these Gospel texts is a wonderful way to prolong the celebration of Easter.  

On the eighth day of the Octave of Easter, we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday.  In 2000, St. John Paul II declared that from then on throughout the Church the Second Sunday of Easter would also be called the Sunday of Divine Mercy. This is entirely appropriate since, as St. John Paul II reminded us, “Divine Mercy is the Easter gift that the Church receives from the risen Christ and offers to humanity…”    He reminds us too that “mercy is an indispensable dimension of love.”  St. John Paul II would refer to mercy as “love’s second name.”  

On this Divine Mercy Sunday, let us recall the message from St. Faustina, who first promoted this devotion.  The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC:

A - Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world. 

B - Be merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us. 

C - Completely trust in Jesus. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. 

 There is a Divine Mercy Chaplet that is prayed daily in many churches and there is a Divine Mercy image that is hanging in many churches as well.  This image shows Jesus with pale and red rays of light coming from his heart.  The red rays represent Christ’s blood and the mystery of the Eucharist. The pale rays represent the water of Baptism and the Gift of the Holy Spirit. From the Sacred Heart of Jesus, God’s merciful love shines forth and illumines the world.  

May we put our total trust In His Mercy!


Deacon Mark


The Mass – A slice at a time


It is also for the presiding Priest to regulate the Word of God and to impart the final blessing. He is permitted, furthermore, in a very few words, to give the faithful an introduction to the Mass of the day (after the initial Greeting and before the Penitential Act), to the Liturgy of the Word (before the readings), and to the Eucharistic Prayer (before the Preface), though never during the Eucharistic Prayer itself; he may also make concluding comments regarding the entire scared action before the Dismissal.

Divine Mercy Sunday – Praising His Mercy

From all that dwell below the skies, let the Creator’s praise arise: Alleluia. Let the Redeemer’s name be sung through every land, by every tongue: Alleluia. Eternal are your mercies, Lord; external truth attends your word: Alleluia. Your praise shall sound from shore to shore, till suns shall rise and set no more. Alleluia.
