Divine Mercy Ministry - What Are the Extraordinary Graces of Divine Mercy Sunday?

In the Diary of St. Faustina, Jesus constantly mentions the great importance of The Feast of Mercy and the extraordinary graces He will grant: My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion will obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. (Diary #699)

No soul will be justified until it turns with confidence to My mercy, and this is why the first Sunday after Easter is to be the Feast of Mercy. (Diary #570)

Not only are we completely forgiven by God, but we receive many additional extraordinary graces. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My Mercy. This is a day of miracles. Ask and you shall receive. Knock and the door will be open to you. The Lord always gives in abundance.

How to prepare and observe Divine Mercy Sunday (this year, April 3rd)
1. Place your complete trust in Jesus.
2. Sincerely repent all your sins by going to Confession during the Lenten Season.
3. Attend Sunday mass and receive Holy Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday.
4. Venerate the Image of The Divine Mercy.
5. Participate in the parish’s celebration of the Feast Day.
6. Be merciful to others, through your actions, words, and prayers on their behalf.

The St. Thomas Divine Mercy Ministry and Knights of Columbus invite you to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday on Sunday, April 3rd beginning with the 12 pm Mass at the Main Church. After this mass, we will gather in the Lower Church where we will celebrate with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, readings and reflections of Our Lord’s wounds, recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet in song and veneration of the Divine Mercy Image. All are welcome to attend this very special gathering.
