Journey with The Pope – 19/4/2020

SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 2020 

“Our God is near and asks us to be near to one another, not to distance ourselves. Right now, in this pandemic crisis, that we are living through this nearness asks to be manifested more, to be made more visible.  Perhaps we cannot draw near physically to others for fear of contagion; but we can reawaken in ourselves a habit of drawing near to others through prayer, mutual help and many other ways of nearness.  Why do we need to be near one another? Because our God is near to us.”

Second Sunday of Easter (or Sunday of Divine Mercy)

Psalm 118

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, his love is everlasting.

Let the house of Israel say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
Let those who fear the LORD say,
“His mercy endures forever.”

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, his love is everlasting.

I was hard pressed and was falling,
but the LORD helped me.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
The joyful shout of victory
in the tents of the just:

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, his love is everlasting.

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
By the LORD has this been done;
it is wonderful in our eyes.
This is the day the LORD has made;
let us be glad and rejoice in it.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, his love is everlasting.
