“My daughter, tell the whole world… On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy.”
“The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.” Jesus to St. Faustina
Complete remission of sins and punishment . . . What could be better than that?
“Growing up in the Baptist church we didn’t have the sacrament of reconciliation let alone the Feast of Mercy. Where does a protestant go to be reconciled with God after grave sin? It is of utmost importance that all learn about the great mercy of God and the healing power of forgiveness that comes showering down from heaven particularly on Divine Mercy Sunday!” Dave Maroney
The Grace of Mercy Sunday – The Defeat of Demonic Multitudes
When we look at St. Faustina’s Diary entries regarding the first time the Image of The Divine Mercy was publicly displayed and venerated, we can gain insight into the dramatic spiritual realities surrounding the Feast of Mercy.
The year was 1935. The place was Vilnius, or Vilno, a city in northern Poland at the time, Lithuania today. It was the weekend after Easter, and the Image was displayed over a crowd celebrating the conclusion of the Jubilee of the Redemption (1933-1935).
This weekend was the first time the Feast of Mercy was celebrated in the manner that comes to us through the revelations of St. Faustina.
Let us contemplate these passages about manifestations that occurred that weekend and pray that they will inspire us to honor, promote, and celebrate the Feast of The Divine Mercy to the fullest. Saint Faustina recorded:
Sunday, April 28, 1935.
Low Sunday; that is, the Feast of The Divine Mercy, the conclusion of the Jubilee of Redemption. When we went to take part in the celebrations, my heart leapt with joy that the two solemnities were so closely united. I asked God for mercy on the souls of sinners. Toward the end of the service, when the priest took the Blessed Sacrament to bless the people, I saw the Lord Jesus as He is represented in the image. The Lord gave His blessing, and the rays extended over the whole world. (420)
When the image was displayed, I saw a sudden movement of the hand of Jesus, as He made a large sign of the cross. In the evening of the same day, when I had gone to bed, I saw the image going over the town, and the town was covered with what appeared to be a mesh and nets. As Jesus passed, He cut through all the nets and finally made a large sign of the cross and disappeared. I saw myself surrounded by a multitude of malicious figures burning with hatred for me. Various threats came from their lips, but none of them touched me. (416)
When the sermon was over, I did not wait for the end of the service, as I was in a hurry to get back home. When I had taken a few steps, a great multitude of demons blocked my way. They threatened me with terrible tortures, and voices could be heard: “She has snatched away everything we have worked for over so many years!” When I asked them, “Where have you come from in such great numbers?” the wicked forms answered, “Out of human hearts; stop tormenting us!” (418)
Seeing their great hatred for me, I immediately asked my Guardian Angel for help, and at once the bright and radiant figure of my Guardian Angel appeared and said to me, “Do not fear, spouse of my Lord; without His permission these spirits will do you no harm.” Immediately the evil spirits vanished, and the faithful Guardian Angel accompanied me, in a visible manner, right to the very house. His look was modest and peaceful, and a flame of fire sparkled from his forehead.
O Jesus, I would like to toil and wear myself out and suffer all my life for that one moment in which I saw Your glory, O Lord, and profit for souls. (419)
