Archdiocese of Chicago: Schedule of 2013 Divine Mercy Sunday Devotions

Sunday, April 7th, is the Feast of Divine Mercy.

In the 1930’s, Jesus appeared to a Polish nun, St. Faustina Kowalska and gave her many messages. On one occasion, He asked that the 1st Sunday after Easter be made an official Church feast day and he gave her directions on how it should be celebrated. Jesus promised tremendous graces of His mercy to all those devoutly participating in these devotions on the feast day, including a plenary indulgence. See

Jesus said: “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 My fountain of mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”
