Saint John Paul II spoke about God's Divine Mercy often, and said: "Those who sincerely say ‘Jesus, I trust in You’ will find comfort in all their anxieties and fears... There is nothing more man needs than Divine Mercy – that love which is benevolent, which is compassionate, which raises man above his weakness to the infinite heights to the holiness of God." Click below for the link to the novena: DIVINE MERCY NOVENA STARTING ON GOOD FRIDAY Did you know.... the Sunday after Easter is designated "Divine Mercy Sunday" as requested by Jesus Himself in the 1930's. He said: “On that day . . . The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.” (Diary, 699) He gave this message to a young nun, now known as St. Faustina. Directed by Jesus, she recorded His messages to her in what is now referred to as "The Diary of St. Faustina." This is a treasure trove of insights that can help us better understand everything God has shared throughout human history, with a strong emphasis on mercy! St. Faustina was taught how to pray what is called the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

She stood beneath the cross of Jesus and watched with horror his excruciating pain as he drew his last breath. No one can imagine what it was like for Mary to experience the passion and crucifixion. "Resurrection" provides a visual portrayal of what Mary experienced. Hearing her son speak, Mary sheds a tear. She embraces the cross and body of her son, becoming covered in his blood, and she was there as they laid him in the tomb. Seeing Mary’s sorrow moves us to personal sorrow and to realize what our sins did to Jesus, and how his death affected his mother. ...And then Mary's experience of the Resurrection!
