April 15, 2012 Divine Mercy Sunday Page FourThe Image? The Graces? Confession?This year I received so many questions in the run‐up to Divine Mercy Sunday that I hardly know where to begin.I need to know in what document of Blessed John Paul II tells us that the Image is to bevenerated on Divine Mercy Sunday. I need the direct quote so I can share it with a priest.The Diary quote doesn't mean much to a lot of people so I can't use those quotes to havea discussion.Well, the Pope never mandated that the Image should be venerated on Divine Mercy Sunday,but as your priest surely knows, the Holy See almost never mandates extra‐liturgicaldevotions of any kind, or even much in the way of liturgical rubrics (save for such basics askneeling or bowing at the consecration of the Host); in the Catholic Tradition these kindsof things are usually set by the local bishops and local bishops conferences and/or the customsof the priests and people. For example, the Roman Missal nowhere mandates thatthe Stations of the Cross must be done on Good Friday, but it is a widespread custom indeed!However, the Holy Father, Blessed Pope John Paul II, set the example himself for us bypublicly venerating the Image of The Divine Mercy numerous times on Divine Mercy Sunday.I believe it is fair to say that he did so publicly at least every Mercy Sunday from 1995onward, when he established a center for the Divine Mercy devotion at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Sassia, just a few hundredyards from St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, and blessed an Image for use in that sanctuary on that day. He also repeatedly praisedthe Image as an aid to devotion for all the faithful. For example, at 1995, after praying in front of the Image above the tomb of St.Faustina, he stated in his holily: "Anyone can come here, look at this Image of the Merciful Jesus, His Heart radiating grace, andhear in the depths of his own soul what [St.] Faustina heard: 'Fear nothing; I am always with you' [Diary, 586]. And if this personresponds with a sincere heart, 'Jesus, I trust in You,' he will find comfort in all his anxieties and fears."In short, to use the Image for prayer and devotion, and to venerate the Image on Divine Mercy Sunday itself, quite apart frombeing a request of Jesus Himself to St. Faustina (see Diary, 341), is simply a good thing to do, because it amplifies the beautifullyexpresses meaning of the Octave Day of Easter: the merciful love of Jesus for us, expressed above all through His death and resurrection,and our need to trust in Him — in other words, the very heart of the Gospel message itself!Some people ask me if it is necessary to attend the services at church to receive all the graces or can they just say all theprayers at home and still receive the graces.You are able to receive the plenary indulgence for acts of devotion to the Divine Mercy on Divine Mercy Sunday, as establishedby Blessed Pope John Paul II, from your own home if you are confined there by illness or some other impediment, but the extraordinarygrace of Divine Mercy Sunday promised by our Lord to St. Faustina can only be received through receiving Holy Communion,in a state of grace, with trust in the Divine Mercy, on Mercy Sunday. Nevertheless, if you are unable to receive that communiondue to illness or confinement of some kind, you can still make a "spiritual communion" at that time, with the proper dispositions,and our Lord will surely pour into your heart all the graces of Holy Communion that you need. He will not be outdonein generosity, nor let any barriers of time, space, or illness stand in the way of the outpouring of His merciful love! Saint Faustinaonce said that in her desire to be united with the Lord in the Eucharist, no geographical obstacles can ever completely get in theway: "I adore You without cease night and day ... even though I be physically distant, my heart is always with You" (entry 80).I have read the Diary and see the great promise of our Lord to those who would receive Communion and go to confession onDivine Mercy Sunday. I have heard that one may go to confession plus or minus a few days of the feast and it still counts. Theproblem is that I cannot find that anywhere in the Diary. Can you tell me if one absolutely has to go to confession on DivineMercy Sunday to receive our Lord's promises or if the Diary states otherwise?No, one certainly does not have to go to confession on the Feast Day itself. The confession is meant to be a preparation for receivingHoly Communion on the Feast Day, in a state of grace, with trust in Divine Mercy, so as long as one does not fall into mortalsin between that confession and Mercy Sunday itself, the confession can be days or even a week or more in advance of theFeast. Saint Faustina herself made her confession on the Saturday before the Feast day (see Diary, 1072).By Dr. Robert Stackpole, STD (Apr 11, 2012)Robert Stackpole, STD, is director of the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy, an apostolate of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception. His latest bookis Divine Mercy: A Guide from Genesis to Benedict XVI (Marian Press). Got a question? E‐mail him at questions@thedivinemercy.org.www.thedivinemercy.org

Page Nine Divine Mercy Sunday April 15, 2012Święto Miłosierdzia BożegoŚwięto Miłosierdzia Bożego, ma najwyższą rangę wśród wszystkich postaci nabożeństwa do MiłosierdziaBożego, które zostały objawione s. Faustynie. Po raz pierwszy o ustanowieniu tego święta mówił Pan Jezus wPłocku w 1931 roku, gdy przekazywał swą wolę, co do powstania obrazu:Ja pragnę, aby było Miłosierdzia święto. Chcę, aby ten obraz, który wymalujesz pędzlem, był uroczyściepoświęcony w pierwszą niedzielę po Wielkanocy; taniedziela ma być świętem Miłosierdzia (Dz.49).Wybór pierwszej niedzieli po Wielkanocy na świętoMiłosierdzia ma swój głęboki sens teologiczny, którywskazuje na ścisły związek, jaki istnieje pomiędzywielkanocną tajemnicą Odkupienia a tajemnicąmiłosierdzia Bożego. Ten związek podkreśla jeszczenowenna z koronki do Miłosierdzia Bożego,poprzedzająca to święto, która rozpoczyna się wWielki Piątek. Swięto jest nie tylko dniemszczególnego uwielbienia Boga w tajemnicymiłosierdzia, ale także czasem łaski dla wszystkichludzi.Pragnę ‐ powiedział Pan Jezus ‐ aby świętoMiłosierdzia było ucieczką i schronieniem dlawszystkich dusz, a szczególnie dla biednychgrzeszników (Dz.699).Dusze giną mimo mojej gorzkiej męki. Daję imostatnią deskę ratunku, to Jest święto Miłosierdziamojego. Jeżeli nie uwielbią miłosierdzia mojego, zginąna wieki (Dz.965).Wielkość tego święta mierzy się miarą niezwykłychobietnic, jakie Pan Jezus z tym świętem związał.Kto w dniu tym przystąpi do Źródła Życia ‐ powiedziałChrystus ‐ ten dostąpi zupełnego odpuszczenia win i kar (Dz.300).W dniu tym otwarte są wnętrzności miłosierdzia mego, wylewam całe morze łask na dusze, które się zbliżą doźródła miłosierdzia mojego; (. . .) niech się nie lęka zbliżyć do mnie żadna dusza, chociażby grzechy jej były jakoszkarłat (Dz.699).Aby skorzystać z tych wielkich darów, trzeba wypełnić warunki nabożeństwa do Miłosierdzia Bożego (ufność wdobroć Boga i czynna miłość bliźniego) oraz być w stanie łaski uświęcającej (po spowiedzi świętej) i godnie przyjąćKomunię świętą.Nie znajdzie żadna dusza usprawiedliwienia ‐ wyjaśnił Jezus ‐ dopóki nie zwróci się z ufnością do miłosierdziamojego, i dlatego pierwsza niedziela po Wielkanocy ma być świętem Miłosierdzia, a kapłani mają w dniu tymmówić duszom o tym wielkim i niezgłębionym miłosierdziu moim (Dz.570).
