Sunday of Divine Mercy - Year C - 28th April, 2019

Being Merciful to Others

 

I was shocked to learn about the bombings in Sri Lanka.

 

Hundreds of people were killed and hundreds injured.

 

Please remember them in your prayers.

 

Lots of young people have been attacked with knives in London.

 

If someone is aggressive towards me the natural response is to be aggressive towards that person.

 

During Holy Week we heard in the Gospel story how Jesus dealt with violence on the cross.

 

He said, "Father forgive them, they don't know what they do."

 

I need to be merciful to others.

 

I can begin by trying to be gentle in my words and conversations.
