In revelations to St. Faustina Kowalska early last century, Our Lord called for a special feast to glorify His inconceivable Divine Mercy. On May 5, 2000 Pope St. John Paul II decreed the second Sunday of Easter to be henceforth Divine Mercy Sunday.
St. Faustina recorded the words Our Lord shared with her, including “I want to grant complete pardon to the souls that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My Mercy.” Diary 1109
On another occasion Our Lord described the significance of Divine Mercy Sunday by declaring, “On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of My mercy. “ Diary 699
Due to present circumstances, you may not be able to go to Confession on Divine Mercy Sunday. The Church recognizes Confession within several days (no more than 20) is acceptable.
In honor of Divine Mercy Sunday we will live stream the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, 2020. View and blessing of the image with be a few minutes before the Chaplet. Please join us as we pray for mercy on us and on the whole world.
