On Divine Mercy Sunday, millions of Catholics around the world will unite at the appointed hour of 3:00 p.m. to ask for God’s mercy and grace. We invite you and your family to attend this beautiful and prayerful service.
The message of Mercy revealed to St. Faustina is not a new revelation, but Jesus did request new forms of devotion and attached powerful promises to them. Because of Divine Mercy, unimaginable graces are available to all of us, and to the whole world.
Divine Mercy Sunday is now an annual celebration of God’s Mercy, when all sin is forgiven and the punishment due to sin is completely removed for those who prepare for this day. Wouldn’t the world be a very different place if everyone you know and all the peoples of the world were fully receptive to these graces?
Our Lord asks for a special prayer at the hour that recalls His death: “At three o’clock every day implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion.” In spite of His Sorrowful Passion, many souls continue to perish. He wants this feast to be a refuge and a shelter for everyone, especially sinners.
The message of Mercy is that God loves us--all of us--no matter how great our sin! It is a message of mercy--a message of forgiveness--a call to conversion and transformation. Sin is the problem; Divine Mercy is the answer!
The Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday.
