Why this Sunday is important

On April 30th 2000, St. John Paul II made a surprise announcement. He officially declared that, throughout the whole Church, the Second Sunday of Easter be called 'Divine Mercy Sunday.'

It's no coincidence St. John Paul II's declaration came during his homily for the canonization Mass of Saint Faustina Kowalska, who, throughout her life, received messages from Jesus, commissioning her to spread devotion to his mercy throughout all the world.

This Sunday, bring to Our Lord any brokenness in your life, or the life of your family, and ask for his healing. Then, trust him - trust God with everything you have, and know how much he loves you.
