Divine Mercy Sunday
April 23rd 2017
DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY offers poor sinners the benefit of a plenary indulgence if the sinner:
- celebrates the Feast on the Sunday after Easter;
- prays the Our Father and the Creed and a devout prayer (e.g. Merciful Jesus, I trust in You!) in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial one;
- places complete trust in Jesus;
- goes to Confession within 20 days before or after Divine Mercy Sunday;
- receives Holy Communion on the day of the Feast;
- venerates the image of the Divine Mercy;
- is merciful to others through actions, words, and prayers on their behalf.
The nine day Divine Mercy novena will begin after the Good Friday Stations. Join us then and also on Divine Mercy Sunday at 3:00 p.m., April 23. Please call Paul Deer at 704-948-0628 with any questions.
