This unique feast of the Church is a day on which Christ has promised to pour out the full abundance of his mercy upon all those who come seeking it. Our Lord promised us through St. Faustina that —“Whomever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment (Diary, 300). Following upon that promise Pope JPII proclaimed that those who fulfill the requirements for the Divine Mercy Indulgence will receive full remission of the temporal punishment due to their forgiven sins.
The Divine Mercy Novena — Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. Divine Mercy Indulgence requirements: That they have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin; that they have sacramentally confessed their sins (within 20 days before or after the day); that they receive the Holy Eucharist. And that they pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff.
As in the past, we will gather at 2:45 - 4:00pm for communal prayer
including singing of the Chaplet Divine Mercy
and time for private prayer, adoration and reflection.
Let us come together and offer our prayers to God, invoking His mercy and love.
