The Love that Covers a Multitude of Sins: A Reflection on Divine Mercy

Divine Mercy

By +Father Ray Ryland, Ph.D., J.D.

Pope John Paul the Great gave us Divine Mercy Sunday.

Over a period of thirty-five years, from the time when he was archbishop of Krakow, John Paul actively forwarded the process of canonizing Sister Faustina.

On April 30, 2000, the first Sunday after Easter, John Paul canonized Sister Faustina—now Saint Faustina. In his homily of canonization, John Paul joyfully…  [Continue Reading]

Readings:
Acts 4:32-35
Psalms 118:2-4, 13-15, 22-24
1 John 5:1-6
John 20:19-31

Three times in today’s Psalm we cry out a victory shout: “His mercy endures forever.”

Truly we’ve known the everlasting love of God, who has come to us as our Savior. By the blood and water that flowed from Jesus’ pierced side (see John 19:34), we’ve been made God’s children, as we hear in today’s Epistle.

Yet we never…  [Continue Reading]

Readings:
Acts 10:34, 37-43
Psalms 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23
Colossians 3:1-4
John 20:1-9

The tomb was empty. In the early morning darkness of that first Easter, there was only confusion for Mary Magdalene and the other disciples. But as the daylight spread, they saw the dawning of a new creation.

At first they didn’t understand the Scripture, today’s Gospel tells us. We don’t know which precise Scripture…  [Continue Reading]

JP II Carrie Mitchell

As we mark the ten year anniversary of Saint John Paul II’s death, the St. Paul Center is reflecting on the many gifts our Holy Father left to the Church. Among them, his call for a “new springtime of evangelization” resounds even more profoundly today.

The new evangelization is in full swing, and every Christian is called to partake in this mission of renewal through the spreading of the Gospel.

Saint John Paul II, Pray for us!

Posted by St. Paul Center on 04.01.15 |

JPII

Today the St. Paul Center honors the memory of Saint John Paul II on the ten year anniversary of his death. Difficult as it is to wrap our minds around the numerous dimensions of his tremendous legacy, arguably one of the most important is his “theology of the body.”

Many scholars have applied this teaching to marriage and human sexuality, but a true theology of the body encompasses much more. John…  [Continue Reading]

Jesus Resurrection

St. Paul makes it clear that Resurrection is an essential aspect of Christian faith. He states,

“If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most to be pitied.” (1 Cor 15:16–19).
The importance of this feast is also reiterated…  [Continue Reading]
