Second Sunday of Easter – Sunday of Divine Mercy

"Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed." Such wisdom applies to our faith in mercy as much as our faith in the resurrection. Where is the evidence for this delightful grace that "endures forever"? God's children are still mired in pettiness, greed, and violence. And the most faithful among us are often the worst off. Where are our "signs and wonders"? Yes, there are moments when we feel mercy's touch. But when will it linger upon our hearts and souls? Must we die first? No, faith will never be as rational as we would like. But should that stop us from choosing to embrace it?
