Prepare for Divine Mercy Sunday:
the Second Sunday of Easter!
Learn about the Divine Mercy & Prepare to recieve an indulgence on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 12!
The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us — all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.
The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC:
A - Ask for His Mercy
. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins, and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world.
B - Be merciful.
God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us.
C - Completely trust in Jesus
. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive.
