Celebrate the Feast of Mercy on Divine Mercy Sunday at St. Hubert. The celebration begins at 2:00 PM on Sunday, April 28 and includes reconciliation, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and Benediction.
Prepare for this feast by praying the Novena to the Divine Mercy, which begins on Good Friday and culminates on Divine Mercy Sunday, the Sunday after Easter.
St. Faustina, whose visions and revelations from Jesus brought into today’s world the message of Divine Mercy, wrote of Divine Mercy in her diary:
“On one occasion, I heard these words: 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. 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 (the Church says within 20 days of Divine Mercy Sunday) and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. 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.” (Diary 699)
