Divine Mercy Sunday

“Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. ” (300)

On this day alone, we can receive the same graces we had at our baptism: complete forgiveness of sins and punishment of sin. During confession our sins are wiped away, but unless we are completely contrite, the punishment of those sins still remain. On this day alone, we can be completely made new.

How do I receive these graces?

It’s simple:

  1. Receive Jesus in the Eucharist
  2. Trust in His Mercy

In order to meet criteria one, we must have gone to confession within at least a year and receive in a state of grace. Please utilize the sacrament of confession before Divine Mercy Sunday in order to receive worthily. For criteria 2, trust in the Lord’s Mercy: “The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is — trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive .”(1578)

Pentecost

“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together.  And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.  And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.” Acts 2: 1-4

  • Vigil mass will be Saturday May 22nd at 5:00pm, and Sunday Morning at 9:00am and 11:00am
