FinalThis joyful Eastertide

We were all a bit sleepy this morning. I announced the first hymn as starting at the 4th verse and then attempted to start at the 4th verse rather than the refrain…

Christo resurgenti was a hangover from Easter Sunday when we didn't do it. Christ our peace was a reflection on Jesus' Easter greeting 'Peace be with you' - though I realised the phrase 'you break down the walls' was in some way a comment on the gospel. It is a very rich gospel, we hear it in each cycle, it would be a shame if it were reduced to divine mercy. A picture appeared and a rather un-Roman prayer read out at the end of Mass. I had quickly scanned the document on the Holy Year that morning and my impression was that Frances hardly mentions Divine mercy rather offers a more trinitarian economy of mercy with the Father as the true source.
