Bulletin Shorts for the Second Sunday of Easter

Second Sunday of Easter (or of Divine Mercy) – 24 April 2022

Acts 5:12-16.  Psalm 118:2-4, 13-15, 22-24.  Revelation 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19.  John 20:19-31.

Standing in Our Midst.  Sometimes we just want proof.  The words and witness of others is not always enough.  Even when we do not ask for Jesus to come, he comes to us, just as he did to the disciples in the upper room.  He is with us still, with us now, extending mercy and peace.

  • What signs do I see of Christ being present, being with us being with me?
  • How can I extend Christ’s Easter greeting of peace to others?
  • How will I be an ambassador of mercy? What work will I do this week?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
