2nd Sunday of Easter - Divine Mercy Sunday - March 29-30, 2008
There’s wideness in God’s mercy like the wideness of the sea. There is kindness in His justice, which is more than liberty. There is no place where earth’s sorrows are more felt than up in heaven. There is no place where earth’s failings have such kindly judgment given. For the love of God is broader than the measure of man’s mind. And the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind.

PLANNED GIVING NOTES
A Charitable Trust Can Increase Your Income!
The IRS allows you to use a charitable trust to
increase your income and reduce your taxes.
The trust is especially useful for highly appreciated assets (real estate
or securities). The trust can also
be used to help loved ones with income after you have gone, but keep the
principal from being spent unwisely.
If you want to know more about this, the Diocese can provide free
assistance. Call Development Office
@ 983-0246, or write to them at: 900 Lafayette St., Suite 301, Santa Clara, CA
