Divine Mercy

 

The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.

This message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God's mercy. Speaking of Sr. Faustina and the importance of the devotional message contained in her Diary: Pope (Saint) John Paul II called her "the great apostle of Divine Mercy in our time." Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is prayed at 3:00 pm ever first Sunday of the Month in the Parish church. There is also the 9-day Novena beginning on Good Friday and ending on the first Sunday after Easter followed with Fellowship.
