The Fourth Teaching:
Mercy is a Two-Way Street — Next, remember that receiving God’s mercy is not a dead-end street, but rather a two-way street! Meaning? Jesus said: “Be merciful as your Heavenly Father is merciful… and forgive…” Therefore, if we want to experience God’s infinite mercy in our lives, we must extend our hand in forgiveness towards those who have offended us. The Our Father teaches us the same lesson: “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Saint Faustina Kowalska in the “Diary of Divine Mercy in my soul” asserts unequivocally that the greatest attribute or virtue in God is His infinite Mercy. Followers of Jesus the merciful Savior must practice this sublime but very demanding virtue. Mercy is God’s love forgiving the sinner. We deciding to forgive our enemies is a clear sign of the victory of God’s grace and mercy in our lives.

“Waking up on the side of the road with no memory of how I got there, I began to cry. I had lost my job, blown through my savings, and was homeless living on the streets. I began to go to Catholic Charities kitchen for a hot meal everyday. Through the fellowship I had with the people of God, there I began to realize that I didn’t need the substances to make me feel good. I began to volunteer at the kitchen. I got my job back and Catholic Charities is where it started.”

Every Thursday after the 7:00 AM Mass until 5:30 PM in the Emmanuel Chapel. Benediction 5:20 - 5:30 PM.
Through this practice, we are invited to spend time alone with God in His real, physical form, and to bring to Jesus all our cares, concerns, prayers, hopes, and thoughts. We set aside a special time, a respite from our hectic modern lives, to create a personal space in which to meet our God.
Biblical reason for wanting to spend One Hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament:
Jesus is infinitely deserving of our unceasing thanksgiving and adoration for all He has done for our salvation.
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor, glory, and praise.” (Rev. 5:12)
This week, the Sanctuary Lamps are burning for:
