Pope Francis at the feast of Divine Mercy: be “apostles of mercy” toward those in need

2016-04-04

In order for God's mercy to be effective and heal all the wounds of humanity, there is a need for people who personify it. They are the apostles of mercy.

This was the message that Pope Francis stated as he presided over mass dedicated to Feast of the Divine Mercy Sunday.

POPE FRANCIS
"The Gospel of mercy, to be proclaimed and written in our daily lives, seeks people with patient and open hearts, "good Samaritans” who understand compassion and silence before the mystery of each brother and sister.”

The Pope said that there is no spiritual disease that the Divine Mercy can not cure. God desires with all his might to rid the world of all modern forms of slavery afflicting children.

POPE FRANCIS
"Mercy desires to reach the wounds of all, to heal them. Being apostles of mercy means touching and soothing the wounds that today affect the bodies and souls of many of our brothers and sisters. Curing these wounds, we profess Jesus, we make him present and alive; we allow others, who touch his mercy with their own hands, to recognize him as 'Lord and God.'”

East Sunday after Easter, the Catholic Church commemorates the Feast of the Divine Mercy. This is especially true when promoting the devotion of two Polish saints: John Paul II and Faustina Kowalska.
