What did Jesus
tell St. Faustina?
Our Lord revealed
to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, in the 1930’s, that He specifically
desired a day of mercy celebrated throughout the Church so that thousands,
even millions, many of whom may be indifferent to the Gospel, could
celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday.
Yet, in the
beginning of the Third Millennium, the vast majority of Catholics remain
unaware of the message of Divine Mercy, and those who are aware are unsure
of how to bring the message to others on the scale Our Lord intends.
can help fulfill Our Lord’s desire.
A systematic parish
program to spread the message of Divine Mercy is needed—a program that
can be easily implemented by a core of committed Catholics who want the
message to reach the hearts of their fellow parishioners. The Apostolate for Family Consecration (AFC) has developed a unique
program to help you do this.
Turn your personal
devotion to Divine Mercy into a parish mission with the Day
of Grace Parish Mission Program™ that
will draw the faithful into the Sacrament of Penance.
This mission can be held
in your parish church on Divine Mercy Sunday, the second Sunday of Easter.
It was developed to assist you in providing a deeply spiritual and
memorable celebration of Divine Mercy.
Organize a Divine Mercy
Sunday parish mission.
The program consists of
captivating teaching programs and devotions including:
Chaplet of Divine Mercy
Rosary, with one of the mysteries acted out in movie format
examination of conscience based on the Ten Commandments—we hope the
Sacrament of Reconciliation will be made available throughout the day
produced by the Marian
The program normally
starts after the last Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday morning and is held in
the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord reserved in the Tabernacle, with
periodic adoration breaks.
