On Divine Mercy Sunday (Sunday after Easter), the slate can be wiped clean!
Among all of the elements of devotion to The Divine Mercy requested by our Lord through St. Faustina, the Feast of Mercy holds first place. Divine Mercy Sunday is the title of the second Sunday of the Easter season. It was named by Pope John Paul II at the canonization of Saint Maria Faustina in April of 2000 and then was officially decreed by the Vatican.
Our Lord revealed to St. Faustina His desire to flood us with His graces on this Feast day. Reflect on each of the promises and desires that He expressed about Divine Mercy Sunday, which are recorded in entry 699 of the Diary of St. Faustina – the main passage about the Feast of Mercy:
"The soul that will go to Confession (20 days before or after) and receive Holy Communion (on that day) shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment."
"I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy (the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist)."
"On that day, all the divine floodgates through which graces flow and the very depths of My tender mercy are wide open."
"Let no soul fear to draw near to me, even though its sins be as scarlet."
These promises and desires point to an amazing flood of graces that are available on Mercy Sunday, including complete forgiveness of sins and punishment! The slate can be wiped clean, and we can be granted a fresh start in life. It can be your second Baptism!
Jesus states in entry 965 of the Diary: "Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My Mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My Mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice is near."
