This weekend, Sunday, April 8th is Divine Mercy. Divine Mercy Sunday is a very special Sunday when the Divine Floodgates from Heaven are wide-opened and Jesus offers us the total forgiveness of all sins and punishment to any soul, who goes to Confession and receives Him in Holy Communion, on that day.
I’m going to admit, I didn’t fully understand this “Divine Mercy” topic. I just happened to notice an email the other day pointing a series on the Formed.org called “Divine Mercy, In the Second Greatest Story Ever Told.” I knew I had some driving around today and managed to get 6 of the 10 episodes done.
Wow! What an education. I really had no idea. This is a fascinating series well worth your time to study. I’m going to watch the other 4 episodes tonight. I’ll be the smartest kid in class. I hope Father asks questions on Sunday! 🙂
Renowned speaker and author Fr. Michael Gaitley tells the dramatic history of God’s love and mercy as interwoven through the transformative message of St. Faustina, the miraculous appearance of Mary at Fatima, the witness of Maximilian Kolbe, and the world-changing papacy of Pope St. John Paul II. Featuring the brilliant cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute’s film studio, the vast panorama of God’s work of mercy in the world unfolds as a story to be experienced.
Here’s a LINK to the series. What a treasure!
