Divine Mercy Sunday



The pictures above are those I always associate with Divine Mercy Sunday -- I also have the top one in my home. This one of Pope John Paul II is one of my favorites. If it weren't for him, this feast day wouldn't exist. How blessed we are for the many graces that he brought into our lives!

In our parish, we celebrated this feast day with the recitation of the rosary, then the recitation of the Divine Mercy, followed by the Divine Mercy Sunday Mass. We received the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturday and attended evening Mass afterward -- I am so thankful for all the graces of this weekend!

As a priest reminded us: "Now if you get hit by a truck and die, you will go straight to Heaven!"

Well, it didn't happen ...

but don't you just love
plenary indulgences?

You should see pictures of the 50 foot statue of the Divine Mercy. We celebrated it last sunday here in the Divine Mercy Hills...
