Divine Mercy Sunday??


#1

This past weekend I attended Mass at a parish other than my own and there was a paper in the vestibule…“The Divine Mercy Times”. The paper said that next Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. My own parish made no mention of it recently. Is this a church wide celebration, or a local celebration?
Many Thanks,
Kathy

I’m so glad the church is celebrating this wonderful devotion! Our parish is having a Feast of Divine Mercy on Sun. April 3rd at 2:30pm. I’ll be there!!

The Divine Mercy Sunday is a new date on the calendar established by the current pope.

Although I’m not quite sure why Quasimodo Sunday was scratched, its theme seemed particularly appropriate especially since its become much more common to just bring new people into the church on Easter, and the first Sunday after would be their first time at mass since converting.

As newborn babes, desire the rational milk without guile, that thereby you may grow unto salvation

The Church must listen to the Lord.
Anyways, why would you deny what a good Polish nun wrote down? Are you sometype of unpatriotic, German loving Polak? :wink: I’m just kidding, don’t take it seriously.

The Theme of Quasimodo Sunday was not necessarily scratched. The Gospel reading is pretty much still the same, it is still the ocatave day of Easter. It seems appropriate that our Lord would request that the Octave Day be devoted to his Divine Mercy. Remember in the Gospel reading, Christ gives his Apostles the authority to forgive sins.
