Note from Fr. Edwin:

Feast of Divine Mercy

In February 1931 Jesus appeared to a Polish nun, Sr. Faustina Kawalska, and asked that the Sunday after Easter be celebrated as a Feast of Mercy and be preceded by a novena beginning on Good Friday.  Jesus promised that those who go to confession and communion on that day will obtain a complete remission of all sin and all punishment due to sin.  The novena begins on Good Friday and ends on the Sunday after Easter.  In 2000 John Paul added Divine Mercy Sunday to the calendar as a feast.  He canonized Sr. Faustina on April 30, 2000, the Feast of Divine Mercy.

The Second Sunday of Easter in the new Missale Romanum bears the name, “DOMINICA II PASCHAE seu de divina Misericaordia.”  While the readings and prayers for Mass on this day remain unchanged the decree on the Apostolic Penitentiary gives guidance to preachers as they reflect on the mystery of Divine Mercy:

The Gospel of the Second Sunday of Easter narrates the wonderful things Christ the Lord accomplished on the day of Resurrection during his first public appearance: “On the evening of the day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’  When he said this, he showed them his hands and his side . Then the disciples were glad to see the Lord.  Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you,’ and then he breathed on them, and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.  If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained” (Jn 20,19-23)

Congratulations – First Communion

Today is a very special day for those who are receiving Jesus for the first time.  It is the day of Divine Mercy.

May the love of Jesus dwell in their hearts.

God bless you all.
