Divine Mercy Sunday
Canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII

Dear Family of Mary!

On this very special day, we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday and the Canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII. Rome is packed with pilgrims. The world is looking on with great interest and anticipation. We can feel the electricity in the air!!

Joined in prayer with the whole Church, we turn to the Father, asking for Mercy on the whole world, in union with our two new Saints!

Here is what Jesus asked of St. Faustina and asks of us today!

On one occasion, I heard these words:
My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable (138) mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy139 be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. 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 graces 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. Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. (139) It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy (699)
 

May the whole world enter into the Sacred Heart of Jesus, from whence Mercy flows. May we all extol God's great Mercy!

Let us pray together the Litany to Divine Mercy:

Prayer:
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Thank you to all who have joined us in this Novena to Divine Mercy. May we now live Mercy in our every thought and deed. May Mercy be our way!! In the words of St. Faustina:

Jesus, make my heart like unto Yours, or rather transform it into Your own Heart that I may sense the needs of other hearts, especially those who are sad and suffering. May the rays of mercy rest in my heart. (514) 


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
