Divine Mercy Sunday HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - April 3, 2016 During the four years that Father Xavier and I shared the rectory, I don't think either of us apologized once.

He says he's sorry for eating at breakfast the lasagna I'd planned to serve for dinner, and I say I'm sorry for yelling when I found the empty dish. But it's really ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/04/divine-mercy-sunday.html
