From NOW through April 3, 2016, Divine Mercy Sunday in this Pope Francis-proclaimed Year of Mercy, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity collaborate with Annie Karto to offer a free download of Divine Mercy Flood My Soul.
John Paul II, who instituted the feast of Divine Mercy and died on the eve of the feast of the Divine Mercy, would smile in appreciation of this amazingly beautiful song-prayer! So exceptionally right for the richly blest feast of The Divine Mercy which we celebrate the Sunday after Easter. This is not a simplistic feast. It is a feast that takes us to the heart of our God, to Jesus the Son, Who came to understand and love and forgive all of us, if only we are open! -Sister Marsaia Kaster
Annie’s song says “…like a river flood my soul, wash me clean, make me whole…”
In our part of the world floods have been a recurring event of late. These floods do not wash clean, but rather clog their paths with mud. Our floods have not made anyone or anything whole, but have destroyed and torn apart homes and lives. Annie’s use of the flood image just reminds me of how God’s ways are so unique. He can take what is so often destructive and turn it into something life-giving. May God’s mercy wash over us in such abundance that it becomes a flood! -Sister Kathleen Murphy
