Second Sunday of Easter (Divine Mercy)

Duccio 'Locked Doors'

When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked....Jesus came and stood among them and said. "Peace be with you". A week later his disciples were again in the house.(....) Jesus came and stood among them. (St John 20:19-26)

This is joyous day (Sunday) which passes by all too quickly, has a tinge of sadness.....One must start life over again the next day - work, study. My heart feels as if it is  in exile on earth....I yearn for eternal rest in heaven, when Sundays never end , in my Father's house (St Therese. The Story of a Soul).
