“I frequently offer Mass here at Mount Saint Mary’s but this is the first time for me to offer a Sunday evening Mass for you, the university students. I’m grateful to Father Brian Nolan for inviting me, happy to greet the Focus Missionaries who are with us tonight and most of all, I’m glad to be with Mount community for a regular Sunday Mass.
“We gather this evening in the final month of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. As you remember, Pope Francis invited us during the past year to unite as a Church to do several important things: to remember with gratitude just how merciful God is; finding God’s mercy in the Person of Christ; to accept God’s mercy as we listen to God’s Word and share in the Sacraments; to extend the mercy we have received by reconciling with others and by showing compassion for those who are in need.”
