The Second Sunday of Easter holds a special place in the Church’s year. It is “Divine Mercy Sunday,” and our celebration calls to the Mercy of God. Here is information regarding “Divine Mercy Sunday.” In the 1930s, Jesus chose a humble Polish nun, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, to receive private revelations concerning Divine Mercy that were recorded in her Diary. St. Faustina’s Diary records 14 occasions when Jesus requested that a Feast of Mercy (Divine Mercy Sunday) be observed. On May 5, 2000, five days after the canonization of St. Faustina, the Vatican decreed that the Second Sunday of Easter would henceforth be known as Divine Mercy Sunday.
Please find more information on Divine Mercy Sunday, as you leave Mass this weekend!
