Bumping this up again. Our Lord’s promise on Divine Mercy
Sunday, take advantage of Saturday afternoon Confession tomorrow and offered at some parishes before Mass this Sunday.

~ ~ ~

...a reminder about the feast day this Sunday, the Feast of Divine Mercy. What a miraculous gift. Our Lord would do this, He asks us over and over to trust Him.

I would like to share an added, my opinion now, do you not think Our Lord’s promise is for everyone? You could...

If you’re not Catholic, before Sunday is best, from your heart with true contrition, confess your serious (mortal) sins to God, act in a merciful way, on the feast day would be good. Next, attend Holy Mass at a Catholic Church near you this Sunday. You CANNOT receive the Eucharist, do not go forward, instead make a “spiritual communion.” Ask Our Lord in prayer to come to you in this way since you can’t receive the Holy Eucharist. It’s God’s call then, you showed having faith, your desire for the promise of Divine Mercy.

Do not be upset with me, I am sharing PO, I could be
way off but Our Lord’s mercy, it’s unfathomable.

Divine Mercy Sunday, perhaps God’s greatest gift of our time.

In the 1930’s Our Lord Jesus requested through Saint Faustina Kowalska that a Feast of Mercy be established and solemnly celebrated in His Church on the First Sunday after Easter every year. The Lord said that this feast would be the “last hope of salvation.”

Jesus Christ revealed this vision of himself to the young Polish nun, Sister Faustina Kowalska. The image was painted and became a vessel to remind the world of God’s greatest attribute, His mercy.

Divine Mercy Sunday will be celebrated April 15, 2012. The great promise of this day is the forgiveness of all sins and punishment due to sin for anyone who would go to Confession and receive Jesus in Holy Communion, on this very special Feast. According to Divine Mercy Productions, one may receive the Sacrament of Confession, also known as Reconciliation, twenty days (I had always heard 8 days before or after the feast day, stpio) before or after Divine Mercy Sunday.

In the year 2000, after many years of study by the Catholic Church, Pope John Paul II, officially established this Feast of Divine Mercy and named it Divine Mercy Sunday. He died on the very vigil day of this feast and was beatified on May 1, 2011, on that same feast!

Why would Jesus offer us something so great right now? Jesus told St. Faustina that she was to prepare the world for His Second Coming and that He would be pouring out His Mercy in great abundance before He comes again as the Just Judge and as a very last hope of salvation.

From the Diary of S. Faustina, 699, Jesus said: “On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel,” will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity.”
