Divine Mercy

Feast of Divine Mercy

19 April 2020

Normally we would gather for the Devotions on the Second Sunday of Easter, or Divine Mercy Sunday. This year in our isolation let us pray together from our homes. Advice on keeping the Feast in line with our Lord’s request to St Faustina can be found here.

A link to praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is provided here.  A link to an Act of Contrition and Spiritual Communion can be found here.

If you search online you will find many communities streaming these devotions.

Many groups around the country are offering this devotion for the end of the Caronavirus Pandemic. I’m sure we should join with that intention.  We have hope that God’s mercy is greater than anything else.  In the Gospels, Jesus assured us on several occasions that persistent prayer would be answered. He told us:

“Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
