On Divine Mercy Sunday Pope Francis said the "Gospel of Mercy" begun by Jesus and the apostles is still unfinished, and is an open book that each person is called to write through their words and actions.
"The Gospel is the book of God's mercy, to be read and reread, because everything that Jesus said and did is an expression of the Father's mercy," the Pope said April 3.
He noted how at the end of the day's Gospel reading from John, the evangelist expressed that while Jesus carried out many signs in the presence of his disciples, not all of them were written down.
Because of this, "the Gospel of mercy remains an open book, in which the signs of Christ's disciples, which are concrete acts of love and the best witness to mercy, continue to be written," he said.
