Regina Caeli: With Mercy Violence and Rancor Have No Sense
2017-04-23 (Vatican Radio) In his Angelus address in a sunny St Peter’s Square, Pope France recalled the Church tradition of calling the first Sunday after Easter “in albis”, an expression he said, meant to recall the rite of those who had received baptism in white on the Easter Vigil. The Pope went on to say that in the Jubilee of Year of 2000, St. John Paul II established that this particular Sunday was to be dedicated to Divine Mercy.
In the last months, the Holy Father said, “we have concluded the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy and this Sunday invites us to resume the grace that comes from the mercy of God.” Read more here.

Cathedral Doors to Be Installed in May
The new wood exterior doors for the Cathedral should be installed during the month of May. These beautiful custom made doors will be replicas of the original doors that have come to the end of their life span. My thanks to all who have pledged or made contributions to this project. If you haven’t contributed and can afford to do so, please do so. We have raised $145,000 so far toward our goal of $220,000. Read more here.

It seems like every time I want to do something that I think will be fun, the church has a rule against it. Why is the church so against pleasure? What’s wrong with enjoying yourself and the good things in life?
This is a great question. It is connected to how profoundly misunderstood God’s rules and the church’s teachings are. You mention that there seem to be so many “noes” for those who want to follow God that we can be tempted to think that God dislikes pleasure and enjoyment. But is that really the case?Read More

It is hard to appreciate God’s mercy if we don’t acknowledge that we are sinners. It’s difficult to think good news is good news if we are not in need of it.
Recently, a priest from another diocese called and spoke to me about what he perceives as a falling off in the reception of the sacrament of confession. He is pastor of a large parish, several thousand families, which has a good tradition of participation in this great sacrament of healing. He doesn’t have the numbers yet, but he senses that fewer people have come to confession this Lent. Coming off the Jubilee Year of Mercy, this is distressing to him. He is wondering: Why?Read More
