As we celebrate today Divine Mercy Sunday, instituted by St. John Paul II, we are reminded that at the center of our faith stands God’s infinite mercy. “The Gospel is the revelation in Jesus Christ of God’s mercy to sinners” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1846). The very name of our Savior, Jesus, means “God saves.” We need, however, to cooperate with the Lord’s saving grace. In the words of St. Augustine, “God created us without us; but he did not will to save us without us” (Sermo 169, CCC, no. 1847). To receive divine mercy, we must recognize our sins and ask for forgiveness (CCC, no. 1847). On this Mercy Sunday, we are assured that if we do so, our sins will be wiped away.
