Tell the world of the Divine Mercy, Pope urges Sunday audience

Catholic World News - April 12, 2010

When the risen Christ visited the apostles and encouraged St. Thomas to explore his wounds, He illustrated the depth of his mercy, Pope Benedict XVI told his Sunday Angelus audience on April 11, the feast of Divine Mercy. "In fact, touching the Lord's wounds, the hesitant disciple heals not only his own diffience, but also ours," the Holy Father remarked.

All Christians have the mission to spread the message of Christ's infinite mercy, the Pope told the crowd that gathered in the courtyard of his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, where he was staying for a week of relaxation after Easter. He urged Catholic priests in particular to bear witness constantly to the good news about God, "whose infinite mercy is an absolute certitude."
