May We Pour Out Mercy to Those Most in Need

Preaching for Palm Sunday for Catholic Women Preach, Millennial writer Nichole Flores offers a reflection which names the words and feelings of woe and abandonment, but calls us to focus on words and actions of healing and mercy:

“As we approach this Holy Week, May we find comfort in the words of mercy poured out Even in the midst of trial. May we pour our mercy to those around us, especially as we all continue to walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death of this pandemic. And may we pour out mercy to those most in need, doing all that we can to defend the lives and dignity of the children of God Crying out for God’s mercy.”
