PODCAST | Divine Mercy Sunday: A Feast of God, Our Merciful Father



St. Josemaria Escriva recognized that God’s forgiveness is even more impressive than his ability to create something out of nothing, and that “his absolute power is best shown in his power to forgive.” On our part, we ultimately have to accept God’s gift of Divine Mercy through the Sacrament of Reconciliation that he established.

In this reflection from Fr. Javier del Castillo, we learn how Christ forgives us, just as he forgave Thomas and the Apostles for running from the Cross and not having believed on Good Friday. After this encounter with the resurrected Christ, we must be sure of God’s forgiveness, and move on to forgiving others.
