Our Holy Pope, St. John Paul II, reminds us in one of his encyclicals, "Dives in Misericordia" that the truth of God is rich in Mercy.
What does this mean for us?
This means that God has so much Mercy that for each one of us it would be sufficient.
If someone is rich, rich in material goods, if he wants he can use these riches to share with others. And so it is with God. God wants to share with us the grace of Mercy. If someone wants to draw from the Mercy of God, he can always do so.
There is only one small condition.
If man only wants...and then he wants to be a man of goodwill , when he realizes that it is God's Mercy he so desperately needs. Jesus said to St. Faustina Kowalska: "Before I come as a Just Judge, I must open wide the doors of My Mercy. Who does not want to go through the door of Mercy must pass through the doors of My Justice."
Now, today, Christ comes to us, a God who is rich in Mercy, as He came to the Apostles in the Upper Room and offered them His room. How can we not take advantage of His presence? How can we not let Him plunge into the depths of God's Mercy. God wants it: because the Lord is Merciful and Gracious....Only if man wants it? Not so long ago, Pope Francis said: God never tires of forgiving us. As well, St.Faustina's merciful Christ said: "Bring me the souls and immerse them in My inexhaustible Mercy."
The second Sunday of Easter, is a good time to experience the truth of God's Mercy. This Sunday in the Octave of Easter, in accordance with the wishes of the Lord Jesus, Sister Faustina submitted it is also the Feast of Divine Mercy....
Mercy.. the most beautiful truth about God...that He loves us, that He is rich in Mercy, that His love wants to forgive everyone..even the greatest sin, giving us a chance to start a new life. There is no force more powerful than the love of God to man. This love has overcome all evil, given the possibilities of liberation from the bondage of sin, gave meaning to suffering and even defeated death. Easter is the most suitable time to cry out with all our might: Jesus I trust in You! and to boldly take in hand the rosary and cry out for the whole world, cry out for others, and cry out for unrepentant sinners: Have Mercy on us and on the whole world.
