Divine Mercy Definitions

Divine Mercy Sunday

In His revelations to St. Faustina Kowalska, Jesus Christ asked that the first Sunday after Easter be established as Mercy Sunday, the "Feast of Divine Mercy," when His graces will be available in an extraordinary way to all those who ask. Mercy Sunday is celebrated in thousands of Catholic parishes across the United States. It has already been accorded as a liturgical Feast Day of the Catholic Church in Poland.

Divine Mercy Image

Jesus commissioned Saint Faustina to have an image painted of Him as He appeared to her in a vision: with red and pale rays coming from the area of His heart. The rays represent the blood and water which flowed from His pierced side on the cross. The image was to be signed: "Jesus, I trust in You!"

The Mercy Message

The message of mercy is that God loves us -- all of us, no matter how great our sins. And He wants us to turn to Him so He can bless us. He wants us to recognize His mercy and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share in His joy. It's as simple as ABC:

Ask for His Mercy

God wants us to approach Him, repenting of our sins and asking for His

Mercy

Be Merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let if flow through us to others.

Completely Trust

God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust.
