The Matter of Life

This is a huge issue of our times. This documentary and other films like "Father Stu" should be supported. By the grace of God, let’s find our courage to stand for truth and light whenever we can because the voiceless and the helpless generally can’t speak for themselves. The veil of darkness only flourish when people with the conscience of light remain silent. Awareness is a key to turning the hearts and minds of our society and win this spiritual battle. Christian movies like "The Passion of Christ", "Bella", "The Matter of Life", etc. are great sources of light for us. We only need to point attention, encourage, and maybe bring people to see it and let prayer, sacrifice and the Holy Spirit do the rest.

Watch it this Monday or Tuesday, May 16 or 17, 7 PM at the Century Hilltop Theatre

Above the Clouds
REFLECTIONS

APRIL 24, 2022 - SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER

1st Reading: Acts of the Apostles 5:12-16
2nd Reading: Revelation 1:9-11, 12-13, 17-19

Gospel: John 20:19-31

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday. In today's gospel, the Risen Lord greeted His disciples "Peace be with you” three times! He could have scolded and reprimanded them all, but out of love and mercy, He understood their doubts and fears, and went on to assure and encourage them. May we, too, become more understanding, more compassionate and more merciful toward others, and also toward ourselves.

 

Someone once said: "It is better to give a piece of your heart than a piece of your mind." More than principles and

righteousness, what pleases God is our compassion, mercy, and kindness toward others.

How understanding and compassionate are you? How forgiving and merciful are you? A person who has been forgiven will also be more understanding, compassionate and forgiving of others. But it also happens that recipients of forgiveness do not become givers of forgiveness. The key is humility. It is pride that blocks true repentance and conversion. Let us ask the Lord today to be merciful upon us and to be merciful unto others as well.

 

Prayer: Lord, no matter what, help me to hold on to your Easter message of love, peace and mercy. Amen.

 

Fr. Dante
