Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine Mercy Sunday is this Sunday, April 11, 2021
  • The Chaplet will be sung immediately following the 9am mass.
  • Confessions are available from 9:45 to 10:30am.

Extraordinary Graces – What graces are available and how do we receive them?

In her Diary, St. Faustina records a special promise given to her by Jesus. He told her to communicate it to the whole world:

“My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy (699).”

In three places in her Diary, St. Faustina records our Lord’s promises of specific, extraordinary graces:

“I want to grant a complete pardon to the souls that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My mercy (1109).”

“Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment (300).”

“The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion will obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment (699).”

To receive these graces, the only condition is to receive Holy Communion worthily on Divine Mercy Sunday (or the Vigil celebration) by making a good confession beforehand and staying in the state of grace and trusting in His Divine Mercy.
