Know Your Faith – Today we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy


Some messages from Our Lord to St Faustina

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. Diary 699 [Note: confession does not have to be done on the Sunday itself. Beforehand is fine]

Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My Mercy. —St. Faustina’s Diary 300

He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My                 justice… Diary 1146

My Heart overflows with great mercy for souls, and especially for poor sinners. If only they could understand that I am the best of Fathers to them and that it is for them that the Blood and Water flowed from My Heart as from a fount overflowing with mercy. Diary 367

These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who will dwells in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him. I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy. Diary 299
