Fr. Bill's Corner:

Second Sunday of Easter (Sunday of Divine Mercy):
Scripture summary from the Ordo: “Thomas believed because he saw the risen Jesus (G). Although we have never seen him, we believe in him (2). We give thanks to the Lord (Ps) for this gift of faith, especially when we gather for the breaking of the bread and the prayers (1).”
“Liturgy Notes”:
1. A special congratulations to Desiree Boartz, who received all her Sacra-ments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Communion, and to Hermon Street, who came into the Catholic Church and received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion. I wish I could have been here with you as you received these Sacraments of Initiation. But, please know that I prayed for you during the Easter Vigil at Christ the King Parish, Ann Arbor.
2. “The paschal candle, a symbol of the presence of the risen Christ among the people of God remains in the sanctuary near the altar or ambo through Vespers on Pentecost Sunday. Its use is encouraged at all liturgi-cal celebration, especially Mass….”
Divine Mercy Sunday:
Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated this Sunday, on the Octave of Easter (the Sunday after Easter Sunday). This feast celebrates the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ, as revealed by Christ Himself to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska.
Divine Mercy Sunday is a relatively new addition to the Roman Catholic li-turgical calendar. Pope John Paul II, who is now a canonized Saint, extended this feast to the entire Catholic Church on April 30, 2000, the day that he canonized Saint Faustina.
This is a day when the faithful can obtain a Plenary Indulgence, which is the forgiveness of all temporal punishment resulting from sin. A Plenary Indul-gence is granted on the Feast of Divine Mercy to whomever goes to Confession within about 20 days of the feast, receives Holy Communion, prays for the inten-tions of the Holy Father, is completely detached from the affection for sin, and takes part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of the Divine Mercy, such as saying an Our Father, the Creed, and prayers to the merciful Lord. A Partial In-dulgence is granted to the faithful who, at least with a contrite heart, pray to the merciful Lord Jesus.
Our Divine Mercy service will be held today (this Sunday afternoon) at OLLH, according to the following schedule: Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at 12:30; Individual confessions from 12:35-1:00; short Scripture Service: 1:00-1:20; Individual confessions: 1:20-1:45; Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Benediction: 1:45-2:00. If you cannot attend the Divine Mercy service, please try to say the Chaplet on that day.
Thanks to All, Who Contributed to the Holy Week Services:
