“I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy.” (Diary, 299)
“…whoever approaches the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment. Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.” (Diary, 300)
“Mankind so needs to understand and accept Divine Mercy” (Pope St. John Paul II, posthumous Divine Mercy message, April 3, 2005).
Lord Jesus, please help us to believe in the promise You made about Divine Mercy Sunday, and may we always turn to Your Mercy with trust. †
[Editorial note: the “Fount of Life” refers to receiving God’s Mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)]
