Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday , we give thanks for the mercy his passion, death & resurrection brought us all.

Saint Faustina Kowalska began the tradition of Divine Mercy nearly 100 years ago, in a world still shocked  by the horrors of World War I. Her influence was felt in Poland, especially by the young Fr. Karol Wojtila, who later became Pope John Paul II. Then after the even greater horrors of WWII more and more people began to see that without mercy there could be no hope for the human race, now that humanity had  the  capacity to destroy itself.

When he declared her a saint on April 30 in 2000 he said: ‘It is not a new message, but can be…..a special light that helps us relive the  gospel of  Easter more intensely...a ray of enlightenment to the men and women of our  time’

Today’s Gospel is about Doubting Thomas, an Apostle who travelled to India (Kerala) to spread the ‘Good News’. He founded Seven Churches in Kerala and eventually travelled to Tamil Nadu where he was martyred.

Retiring collection today  goes to support the St. Vincent de Paul Society who show God’s mercy in simple ways to the needy

The Feast of the Annunciation (Monday), delayed for two weeks due to Holy Week & Easter Week.

St Stanislaus (Thursday) was bishop of Krakow, Poland. A champion of the liberty of the Church and of the dignity of all, he defended the lonely and the poor.  He will killed whilst saying Holy Mass. Devotion grew and he was canonised in 1253. He is Patron Saint of Poland.

St Martin (Saturday) was born in Todi, Italy. He was elected Pope in 649. For his defence of Christ as true God and true man, he was exiled to the Crimea and died. He is venerated as a martyr.
