St. Patrick’s of Tekamah:
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’”
- JOHN 20:21 - Peace – the first gift of the risen Lord. Just as Jesus sent the apostles out into the world, so too, He sends us. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be grateful n d generous. Look for opportunities to share His peace, not only within our local parish boundaries, but outside of them as well. In giving, we receive the peace of Jesus Christ.
Children’s good deed: “I served at Mass 4 days in a row, I helped take care of the dog; I made a card for grandma & grandpa.”

2 Corinthians 9:7
Prayer for Easter Jesus, you are risen, so there is hope for me. You are no longer in the power of sin of evil! Love has triumphed, mercy has been victorious! God’s mercy always triumphs because God’s love is stronger than evil and death itself. God’s love can transform our lives too. God’s love can do this! (Pope Francis)
Alleluia, Alleluia! Hearts to heaven and voices raise. Sing to God a hymn of gladness, sing to God a hymn of praise.

From Fr. Kevin… The reality of the Resurrection was a fact that
had to be established among the early Christian
community. On this 2nd Sunday of Easter, in
our gospel St. John is establishing the fact of
Jesus’ resurrection with his clear focus on
physical details that assert the authenticity of
Jesus having been raised from the dead by the
Father. It is more than a spiritual reality. After
showing the disciples his wounds, Jesus
breathes on them as God first breathed on
Adam, initiating a new creation of which they
will be the heralds. They are to be bearers of a
wondrous privilege of the forgiveness of sins.
In our first reading from The Acts of the
Apostles we see the Twelve Apostles as a
magnet that draws believers, enlivened by
the Holy Spirit to share their experience of the
risen Christ. They have become powerful
evangelists winning hearts to Christ, transforming lives. On this Divine Mercy
Sunday we see how God’s mercy and the
teaching of the Apostles work to turn hearts
into fertile ground for the seed of the Gospel to
sprout into a bountiful harvest! May each of us
have a profound experience of the Risen Jesus
this Easter season.
Peace, Fr. Kevin
Congratulations to our Confirmandi, who were confirmed at St. Francis of Borgia in Blair on Saturday. May God Bless them and empower with the Holy Spirit. We also thank Mrs. Ali Petersen, Scott Niewohner and Lyle Pille, their parents, DRE Mrs. Ashley Olson and Fr. Kevin for their efforts, assistance and guidance.
FAITH FACTS Mercy endures forever
In the Old Testament, mercy (Hebrew, hesed) usually identifies a complex Hebrew idea that describes God’s special covenant love. God’s desire to be in communion with us as covenant with us as covenant partners reveals an attitude of divine love and faithfulness that includes loyalty, compassion, dependability, trustworthiness, and an eagerness to help when situations turn bad. And once God commits to the people in covenant fidelity, there is no question of God ever retracting that commitment. God’s covenant love will never end.
