Divine Mercy

Pope St. John Paul II instituted the Sunday after Easter as The Sunday of Divine Mercy.  St. Faustina received personal revelations from our Savior Jesus Christ involving His great mercy which flows from the wounded side of Christ from a lance at His crucifixion.  Jesus said to St. Faustina, “I am love and mercy itself.  When a soul approaches Me with trust, I fill it with an abundance of graces that it cannot contain them within itself, but radiates them to other souls.”  In another visit of our Lord to St. Faustina, He said, “I have opened My heart as a living fountain of mercy.  Let all souls draw life from it.  Let them approach this sea of mercy with great trust.  The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is trust.  The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.”

This Sunday we will celebrate the Divine Mercy with a special celebration.  I encourage every one of you to entrust your soul to the mercy of Jesus Christ.  For He says in another vision, “I never reject a contrite heart.”  So, this afternoon the schedule follows:

2:00 p.m. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

2:00-3:00 p.m. Confessions

3:00 p.m. Chaplet of Divine Mercy

3:30 p.m. Benediction

God is so good, isn’t He!
