Deacon's Comment: Divine Mercy

How many of us want more mercy from God in our lives?  I would be surprised if the answer wasn't all of us!  However, do we equally want to give mercy?  We see in the beatitudes that "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."  In Luke 6:36, we are told how to show mercy, "Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful."  We are called to be the light of the world and be the embodiment of God's love and mercy.

“God is good! I felt the power of the Holy Spirit the second I got off the plane. God wants to bless and heal his people!

The first evening we had dinner with the local Bishop. He was very excited we were there!  We were blessed to have him show us his residence and the beautiful Cathedral.  Truly spectacular!  The Bishop gave us his blessing and words of encouragement!”

Day One

We were invited to attend one of the Novena masses for the Santo Nino Feast Day coming up to January 12th. What we were astounded by was the mass of people that attend this mass, for the Basilica holds 11 masses every day of the year.  Each mass can hold 15,000.  Wow!  As we arrived we we were escorted not knowing where our destination was within the crowds. We soon realized we were given seats on the altar area!  What a blessing to see all the faithful people celebrating Santo Nino.
