What is Divine Mercy?
It is one of the greatest mercies given to us from our Lord Himself!
In a series of revelations to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska in the 1930s,
our Lord called for a special feast day to be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter. Today, we know that feast as Divine Mercy Sunday, named by Pope St. John Paul II at the canonization of
St. Faustina on April 30, 2000.
All one has to do, for complete remission of sin, is to start the Novena and Chaplet on Good Friday, say both daily for 9 days, and on Divine Mercy Sunday fulfill these simple requirements:
Celebrate the Feast on the Sunday after Easter.
Sincerely repent of all our sins.
Place our complete trust in Jesus.
Go to Confession, 8 days prior to or up to 8 days after Divine Mercy Sunday.
Receive Holy Communion on the day of the Feast.
Venerate the Image of The Divine Mercy for at least 15 minutes.
Say a prayer for the holy Father.
Be merciful to others, through our actions, words, and prayers on their behalf.
Our Lord is so merciful and loves us immeasurably that He desires to spread His mercy to the whole world!
