In the 1930s Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, and among the messages asked that a Feast Day be established in the Church the Sunday after Easter in honor of His Divine Mercy.

He said:
My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. 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. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity.

Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy.... Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy. (Diary 699)
St. Mark Church in Ama will have a special Divine Mercy Sunday celebration this Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. with exposition of the Holy Eucharist, Rosary and confession; Procession of the Eucharist will be at 2:45, followed by Divine Mercy Mass at 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served after Mass at the Fr. Cote Center.
