 Divine Mercy Shrine
   On February 22, 1931 the Lord Jesus appeared to St. Faustina Kowalska in her convent cell in Cracaw, Poland. He spoke to her about the feast of Divine Mercy, the Sunday after Easter. 
    Jesus said: “On that day, the very depths of My mercy are opened. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy...”  Also: “The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”
    Jesus, who appeared in a white robe with red and white rays of light emanating from His Sacred Heart, (the white light represents Baptism and the red the Precious Blood) told St. Faustina to have an image of His apparition painted with the subscript “Jesus, I trust in You.” The image should be kept in a prominent place and blessed and venerated on Divine Mercy Sunday.
     St. Faustina also received a special prayer, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy which the faithful may recite at any time but is especially appropriate for the 3:00 hour, the hour of Divine Mercy when we remember the moment the Lord gave up His Spirit for the salvation of the world.
    St. Faustina wrote a 600 page diary of the apparitions and messages she received from Jesus before she died on October 5, 1938.
    Divine Mercy Sunday was given to the Universal Church on April 30, 2000, the day of the canonization of St. Faustina by Pope St. John Paul II.  Everyone should take the time to read the Dary of St. Faustina which contains her story and the messages she received from Jesus.
    The Divine Mercy is very special to me and to missions around the world.
    The Divine Mercy images in our three churches were all donated by anonymous donors.
