"Peace be to you." (from today's Holy Gospel, Jn. 20.19-31) - Octave Day of Easter
That is the fruit of authentic manifestation of God's mercy which, in Apostolic "Paradosis" (Tradition: II Thess. 3.6), is His benevolent goodness removing the tribulation of us poor fallen creatures - that is, the tribulation of sin. "Wherefore it behoved Him in all things to be made like unto His brethren, that He might become a merciful and faithful priest before God, that He might be a propitiation for the sins of the people" (Heb. 2.17). Appearing today to His fearful Apostles that they may boldly confess with the enlightened* testimony of St. Thomas the Aposlte (v.27) : "We trust in Thee, [Our] Lord AND [Our] God," He showed them His palpable wounds as to say: I, your Lord and Master, "the Author of life [they] killed" (Acts 3.15) but now Resurrected, alone can cure you and those to whom I shall send you, they who seek Me in truth, by these same wounds.
* Philippine-based Iglesia ni Manalo (falsely so-called 'Church of Christ' 'IglesiaNiCristo') claims: "He was corrected [for saying that Jesus is God]" >> but, according to their own Protestant criteria if a teaching is God's or the devil's, where is "He was corrected...," even as a parenthetical note, WRITTEN in the succeeding verses in their trusted versions???
The 'liberal-Modernist Catholicism' of Vatican II eclipses today - since 'Saint' John Paul II - that authentic [Scriptural] manifestation of divine mercy 1) starting with a vision of an entity that seeks souls to 'trust' in him but >>> CONTRARY TO WHAT OUR LORD DID IN THE GOSPEL today extending still His mercy towards souls fearful in suffering for their Lord : without showing the world, in the original image, the healing and saving wounds of the Crucified - even eradicating the very crown of them all: His WOUNDED Heart. +++Authentic divine mercy towards us is CONSISTENTLY manifested by the sacred Passion of Our Lord. +++ "If there is found even the least*** thing that is contrary to Sacred Scriptures or to the doctrines of the Church, I will not believe it to be of God even if the whole world were to convince me" (our holy Mother Teresa of Jesus). Why this 'devotion' had been roundly consistently condemned four times at that - THRICE even by the first Pope of Vatican II 'ecumenical' "disorientation," 'Saint' John XXIII; and, by Pope Pius XII...
*** On this note, the 'prophetess-author' of the 'Book of Truth' and inventor of the 'Seal of the Living God' in card form (contrary to the explanation of the Church Fathers on Apoc. 7.2), taking this 'divine mercy' thing - obviously a counter-devotion by the parallel pseudo-Church to the traditional Sacred Heart Devotion - for her 'religious' title "Maria Divine Mercy" or 'MDM', is therefore either inspired or possessed by the devil.
