Jesus died and rose from the dead for one important reason - to flood the earth with His Divine Mercy. At the cross, blood and water poured out from the Heart of Jesus - the sign of His overflowing mercy upon us.
Our Lord, the King of Mercy, told Saint Faustina, "I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open." This is the greatest gift of the Risen Lord for all eternity.
Let us praise God for His loving mercy and compassion. And through the prayers of our Blessed Mother, Saint Faustina, and Saint John Paul II - the great apostle of Divine Mercy in the modern time - may we all come to the fountain of mercy and be filled with the grace of God.
