St Pats Weekly Bulletin
All of our students spent some time praying in the presence of Jesus last week.
It was a beautiful, peaceful experience for your children. They prayed for their parents, grandparents. and the Fort McMurray evacuees. Where is Jesus? Right Here, Right Now!
Pope Francis notes on the Divine Mercy of God through Jesus.
I am always struck when I reread the parable of the merciful Father. ... The Father, with patience, love, hope and mercy, had never for a second stopped thinking about [his wayward son], and as soon as he sees him still far off, he runs out to meet him and embraces him with tenderness, the tenderness of God, without a word of reproach. ... God is always waiting for us, He never grows tired. Jesus shows us this merciful patience of God so that we can regain confidence and hope — always!
