“There is nothing that man needs more than Divine Mercy—that love which is benevolent, which is compassionate, which raises man above his weakness to the infinite heights of the holiness of God.
“In this place we become particularly aware of this. From here, in fact, went out the Message of Divine Mercy that Christ Himself chose to pass on to our generation through Blessed Faustina. And it is a message that is clear and understandable for everyone. Anyone can come here, look at this image of the merciful Jesus, His Heart radiating grace, and hear in the depths of his own soul what Blessed Faustina heard: “Fear nothing. I am with you always” (Diary, 586). And if this person responds with a sincere heart: “Jesus, I trust in you,” he will find comfort in all his anxieties and fears….
“I give thanks to divine Providence that I have been enabled to contribute personally to the fulfillment of Christ’s will, through the institution of the Feast of Divine Mercy. Here, near the relics of Blessed Faustina Kowalska, I give thanks also for the gift of her beatification. I pray unceasingly that God will have “mercy on us and on the whole world” [from the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, Diary, 476]. ~St Pope John Paul II at St. Faustina’s tomb in Lagiewniki , Poland, in 1997
The 10 am Sunday Mass will continue to live stream for those who are not able to attend in person or who do not feel comfortable attending due to health risks.
You MUST SIGN UP to be able to attend as we are still limited in the number of people allowed in the church at one time.
We hope each of you will continue to celebrate Mass in person or at home, pray and feel his LOVE through the Blessed Eucharist
God Bless You!
