Divine Mercy Sunday



The Catholic Church celebrated yesterday the Divine Mercy Sunday which is also the Second Sunday after Easter. It is based on the Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy that St. Maria Faustina reported as part of her encounter with Jesus, and is associated with special promises from Jesus.

This celebration illuminates the story behind Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He the good shepherd shows us how merciful he can get by giving up his life in place of ours.




Sacrificing one’s time, resources and killing every form of ego is my own interpretation of ‘dying’ for a neighbor. We live in a world where everyone seems to be in such a hurry to get ahead neglecting his/her basic social responsibilities to the community they live in.


The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of our Christian faith. Our confession of this is by actively engaging in selfless services so innumerable to count.

Peter’s confession of faith became the faith of the church. In the gospel readings of yesterday Jesus taught us how to confess our faith even without seeing the physical manifestations as proof.

‘The desire to make it right and to share love around freely is the antidote to experiencing the Divine Mercy been made available to us’


The feast of Divine Mercy as recorded in the dairy of St. Maria Faustina, receives from Jesus himself the biggest promises of grace related to the Devotion of Divine Mercy.




In specific, Jesus reputedly said that a person, who goes to sacrament of confession and receives Holy Communion on that day, shall obtain the total forgiveness of all sins and punishment.
