Divine Mercy Sunday 2019

 Divine Mercy Sunday

Sunday, April 28 is Divine Mercy Sunday

“. . . Let all mankind recognize My unfathomable Mercy. It is a sign for the 'end times'. After it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My Mercy, let them profit from the blood and water which gushed forth for them." (Diary 848)

The Feast of the Divine Mercy, also called Divine Mercy Sunday, will be solemnly celebrated at St. Piux X on the first Sunday after Easter, April 28 (the Octave of Easter), starting at 2:00 pm in the Church.

Jesus himself promised to Saint Faustina, as recorded in her Diary, great graces related to Devotion to His Mercy, stating:

"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." (Diary 1109)

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

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