Reflections on Divine Mercy


fr alimajiThis 2nd Sunday of Easter has come to be known as the Divine Mercy Sunday (Weekend) since the Devotion to the Divine Mercy following the beatification of Sr. Faustina on April 18, 1993, by Pope John Paul II. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy would be recited around the world at 3 p.m. this Sunday. Let us come and join in prayers in our parish church too. Devotees pray it daily at 3 p.m. My dear brothers and sisters, in our parish we combine the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Prayers, together with the devotions to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, on First Fridays of the month. As we celebrate Divine Mercy, we realize that we are saved by God’s mercy, not because of anything we might have done. As St. Paul said: “… while we were still sinners Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). This teaching began with his assertion that “we have been justified by faith” (Rom. 5:1). This 2nd Sunday of Easter has come to be known as the Divine Mercy Sunday (Weekend) since the Devotion to the Divine Mercy following the beatification of Sr. Faustina on April 18, 1993, by Pope John Paul II.
