Palm Sunday: Courtyard of Mercy Reflection
This Palm Sunday visio divina reflection is brought to us by Barbara Sutton. Upon spending time at Saint William's Catholic Church in Naples, FL in their newly established Courtyard of Mercy, this reflection emerged.
In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Holy Doors are opened so that those who enter through them "will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instils hope" (The Face of Mercy, 3). As we transition into Holy Week, may we consider the doors that have opened before us, that have ushered us into this present moment. Leaving our worries and expectations behind, let us walk through the Doors of Mercy just as we are.
