Losing a loved one is painful as we are left with many questions such as : will they be with Jesus in heaven, are they suffering, do they know we are present to them? Divine Mercy Sunday is this celebration of God’s rich mercy He desires all to know and avail of His Goodness. St John Paul II in his pontificate was so aware of the despair of humanity reaching unprecedented heights of destruction of marriage, family and the dignity of the person that he proclaimed Jesus private revelation to Sr. Faustina a feast to be honored by all the faithful on the Second Sunday following Easter and attached a Plenary indulgence to all who fully participate in the Divine Mercy devotion.

Do you know Me, love Me, and share Me?
Chances are you are not the only one mourning a loved one! Share Jesus’ Divine Mercy, bring a new person with you to confession and stay for the chaplet and mass to gain the Plenary indulgence. Jesus desires that the whole world participate of His Redemptive Love, so who am I going to share this good news and invite to His mercy with this week?
