Divine Mercy Sunday – established in year 2000 by St. Pope John Paul II
From the Diary of St. Maria Faustina
Tell all people, my daughter, that I am love and mercy itself. When a soul approaches Me with trust, I fill it with such an abundance of graces that it cannot contain them within itself, but radiates them to other souls. (Diary 1074)
The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. (Diary 299)
I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this Image with the signature: ‘Jesus, I trust in You’ (Diary 327).
By means of this Image I shall be granting many graces to souls; so let every soul have access to it. (Diary 570). I promise that the soul that will venerate this Image will not perish. I also promise victory over [it’s] enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory (Diary 48).
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).
Go, receive, be filled with the grace of our Lord’s Divine Mercy. He is waiting for you.
