Understanding Divine Mercy Sunday

boldly proclaim to our communities that “God is rich in mercy; because of his great love for us, he brought us to life with Christ when we were dead in sin” (Eph 2:4-4). May Mary, Mother of the Crucified and Risen One and our most merciful Mother too, “continue by her manifold intercession to obtain for us the graces of eternal salvation” (Lumen Gentium, 62). Fraternally in Christ, Most Reverend Justin Rigali Archbishop of St. Louis
