God the Father is waiting for us to embrace us with love. We need to turn our minds and hearts to Him who loves us so much. The Holy doors are kept open at a center in all the vicariates of the diocese. Let us enter it with due preparation to receive the indulgences and to become transformed people.
We who have received the mercy abundantly from God the Father are called to share that Mercy with others. Let us get involved in charitable activities no matter how small we relieve human misery from our surroundings. By our love and compassion to others, we stand before Him who promised us: Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Let us comfort the sorrowful, counsel the disturbed, instruct the ignorant, forgive enemies and solace the victims of terror and intolerance. Let us also as Jesus expected of us to do, get involved in corporal works of Mercy. Let our natural attitude towards the marginalized sections of the humanity be expressed in feeding the poor, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and those in prison of loneliness, and burying the dead.
There will be many diocesan observances of the Year of Mercy and time to time you may visit our church website: www.stmichaelscathedral.in.
Have a blessed Lent and wishing you God’s Blessings
