Divine Mercy Sunday
April 11, 2021
It would be impossible to end my Lenten Reflection series of posts without mentioning God's Divine Mercy. On Good Friday we began the Divine Mercy Novena - 9 days of prayers celebrating Jesus' Divine Mercy - His love given freely to mankind - young & old - male & female - everyone. God - Jesus - the Holy Spirit - does not limit His love - forgiveness - to any one group of people. He is all for all - period. With this novena - we celebrate and honor our Lord with all that is Divine and good. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is prayed daily at the 3 o'clock hour by many. 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.
