A joyful feast of Divine Mercy Sunday!

 

 

Dearest friends,

A joyful feast of Divine Mercy Sunday! What an incredible grace our Merciful Father has given us today!

 

The message of Divine Mercy is simple. It is about God’s Merciful Love. As St. John Paul II said: Mercy is Love’s second name. It is a particular kind of love, when it encounters suffering and sin. That despite our brokenness, sinfulness, and weaknesses God never cease loving us - His children. He wants us to TRUST HIM, with all that we are, and with all that we have, and in all that we do. To recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, and as He is merciful to us, we should also be merciful to others.

 

 

Excerpts from St. Francis de Sales website:


Why is there Divine Mercy Sunday?


Jesus appeared to St. Faustina Kowalska for the first time on Feb. 22, 1931 and gave her His first revelation about His Divine Mercy. Jesus’ message is that He desires mankind to avail itself to the infinite mercy of God on earth. That is why he wanted the first Sunday after Easter to be Divine Mercy Sunday.. This is a special feast because it is one asked for by Jesus Himself!


How do we avail ourselves to this Divine Mercy?


Jesus will give us complete forgiveness of sins and punishments if we do a few simple tasks. We are asked to attend Mass and receive Holy Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday. We also should say the Divine Mercy Chaplet and venerate the Divine Mercy Image on Divine Mercy Sunday. A good confession must be made 20 days before or after Divine Mercy Sunday. Not much to ask for when you consider that you receive forgiveness of sins and remission of punishment!

 

 

Why did God give us the Feast of Divine Mercy?


Jesus said to St. Faustina, “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. 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. The soul that goes to Confession and receives Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the Divine blood gates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near Me, even though its sins be scarlet. My Mercy is so great that no mind, be it man or angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it is solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the fount of My Mercy.” (St. Faustina Diary 699)

“Those who sincerely say 'Jesus, I trust in You' will find comfort in all their anxieties and fears." "There is nothing more man needs than Divine Mercy ~ that love which is benevolent, which is compassionate, which raises man above his weakness to the infinite heights to the holiness of God," - St. Pope John Paul II

 

JESUS WE TRUST IN YOU!
