As we celebrate the Sacred Triduum, recounting the events of Christ’s Passion and Resurrection, I encourage you all to take advantage of the great graces offered through the Divine Mercy devotion with the Novena, which begins today, on Good Friday, in preparation for Divine Mercy Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter. On April 30th, 2000 Pope John Paul II instituted Divine Mercy Sunday as an official feast of the Church. In doing this he said,
by this act today, I pass on the message of Divine Mercy to the new millennium. I pass it on because I want people to know the better face of God, and that of his Divine Mercy, and through it, the better face of their brethren. The light of the message of Divine Mercy which the Lord wished to renew in the world, will be as much a beacon of hope for the third millennium, as the apostles were in the first.
