FEAST OF DIVINE MERCY

APRIL 23, 2017
SUNDAY AFTER EASTER

 

DIVINE MERCY IMAGE

  "I  WANT  TO GRANT A COMPLETE  PARDON to  the  souls  that  will  go to CONFESSION and receive HOLY COMMUNION on  the FEAST OF MY MERCY." 
On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened.
Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet.

(JESUS  to  St. Faustina,  Diary  #1109, #699)

 

 

 

PLENARY INDULGENCE is granted under the usual conditions*  to the faithful who, on the Second Sunday of Easter or Divine Mercy Sunday, in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honour of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus. (ex. Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!")

 

What is a PLENARY INDULGENCE?
     A plenary indulgence means that by the merits of Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the saints, the full remission of the temporal punishment due to sacramentally forgiven sins is obtained. The person becomes as if just baptized and would fly immediately to heaven if he died in that instant. A partial indulgence means that a portion of the temporal punishment due to forgiven sin is remitted.  www.ewtn.com

 

*  Three  usual conditions for every plenary indulgence:      

(1) Sacramental confession  (within about 20 days before or after)    

(2)  Eucharistic communion    

(3) Prayer for the intentions of the Pope   (Our Father, Apostles’ Creed, & Hail Mary suggested)

 

A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who, at least with a contrite heart, pray to the merciful Lord Jesus a legitimately approved invocation. (ex. Jesus I trust in You! )

 

~ OTHER DEMANDS OF JESUS ~


Acts of Mercy, Solemn Celebration of the Feast, and Veneration of the Image

      “I demand from you deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Me. You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve yourself from it.  I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first – by deed, the second – by word, the third – by prayer.
       Yes, the first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy, and I demand the worship of My mercy through the solemn celebration of the Feast and through the veneration of the Image which is painted. By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souIs. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works.” 
       (St. Faustina’s Diary, #742)

 

 

Note:           
FEAST OF MERCY STARTS with a NOVENA which Jesus instructed St. Faustina to write down & make before the Feast of Mercy. It begins on Good Friday. But it can be done also any time of the year.

 

THE GREAT WARNING or the ILLUMINATION OF CONSCIENCE:
A GREAT ACT OF GOD’S MERCY

    

    JESUS:  Before I come as the just judge,    I am coming first as the King of Mercy… there will be given to people a sign in the heavens... a great darkness... Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky,and from the openings where the hands and feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place before the last day.  Speak to the world about My mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the days of justice! Let souls have recourse to the fount of my mercy, while there is still time. (Diary of St. Faustina #83, #848 )  

 “I have decreed a great day, in which a terrible judgment will reveal the consciences of men & they will be tested.”  (God to St. Edmund)


According to Garabandal visionaries:

Conchita: “(The Warning) is a phenomenon which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have always given as an example that of two stars that collide. This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done.” 

Jacinta: “The Warning is for everybody because God wants our salvation. The Warning is for us to draw closer to Him and to increase our faith. Therefore, one should prepare for that day, but not awaiting it with fear because God doesn't send things for the sake of fear but rather with justice and love and He does it for the good of all His children that they might enjoy eternal happiness and not be lost.” www.garabandal.org

 

“What will come to pass is something so very great that it will exceed anything that has taken place since the beginning of the world. It will be like a judgment in miniature, and each one will see his own life and all he has done, in the very light of God.” ~ The Blessed Mother to Fr. Stefano Gobbi in October of 1992, #478         
                         

The WARNING will happen SOON!

HOW TO PREPARE?

1. BE IN THE STATE OF GRACE ALWAYS by going regularly to Confession (Sacrament of Reconciliation)- monthly or better, weekly, but right away if you commit a mortal sin.

2. PRAY FOR HARDENED SINNERS who will not pray for themselves.

3. PREPARE YOUR FAMILY from the youngest (with the age of reason, about 7 years old) to the oldest.

4. PRAY EVERYDAY the Total Consecration to Jesus thru Mary (TC JM),   Divine Mercy Chaplet & the Holy Rosary.
