Divine Mercy Sunday is April 23rd
“On this day the very depths of My tender mercy are open; I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who will approach the fount of My mercy on this day. On this day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Therefore, let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet”
The Feast of the Divine Mercy, also popularly called the Divine Mercy Sunday, is a solemnity celebrated on the Sunday after Easter (the Octave of Easter).
Divine Mercy Sunday, as recorded in the diary of Saint Faustina, receives from Jesus himself the biggest promises of grace related to the Devotion. According to the diary of Saint Faustina, Jesus states that:
The soul that goes to Sacramental Confession (the confession may take place some days before)
and receives Holy Eucharistic Communion on that day shall obtain the total forgiveness of all sins and punishment.
The Roman Catholic Church also grants a plenary indulgence (observing the usual rules):
- Sacramental confession [according to previously issued norms, within about 20 days before or after]
- Eucharistic communion [according to previously issued norms, preferably on the day, or the days before or after]
- Prayer for the intentions of Supreme Pontiff [certain prayers are not specified. i.e.: Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be]
