The Holy Hour of Divine Mercy

April 28, 2019

Celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday on April 28th, at a special Eucharistic Holy Hour beginning at 3:00 PM in the Sanctuary.

The Feast of Divine Mercy is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of Easter (the Sunday following Easter Sunday).  The Feast of Divine Mercy celebrates the fact that even now, Jesus calls us to immerse ourselves in his mercy and love. This feast focuses on God’s continuing merciful action throughout salvation history to this day!  After his Resurrection, Jesus took great care to show his apostles his hands and side, pointing to the wounds of the Passion, especially the wound in his heart, the source from which flows the great wave of mercy poured out on humanity.

Come experience the mercy and healing of our Lord.  The Divine Mercy devotion has grown greatly in popularity. Pope John Paul II declared the Second Sunday of Easter Divine Mercy Sunday when he canonized the Polish saint, Faustina Kowalska on April 30, 2000.  St. Faustina’s revelations put a great emphasis on this day as a “day of mercy”.  The familiar image of the Divine Mercy pictures two beams of light radiating from the heart of Christ, imaging the “water and blood” we hear about in 1 John 5:6.  The Divine Mercy chaplet is prayed using rosary beads with special texts emphasizing the saving Passion of Christ.

The Divine Mercy Novena began on Good Friday – April 19, 2019.   The Chaplet is prayed daily in our Chapel at 8:15 AM before the recitation of the Rosary.   Novena Booklets are available on the Welcome Counters in the Narthex.
