I’m about to go to confession and then Mass at the National Shrine of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. What a sacred feast day it is — Divine Mercy Sunday —based on Saint Faustina’s revelations of the Lord in Poland; a devotion so strongly supported and encouraged by Pope John Paul II, who fought for the rehabilitation of Faustina’s reputation when her Diary and mystical experiences were met with opposition.
The Lord invited us on this day to go to confession, allow Him to cleanse our souls, to purify and free us. His abundant mercy is overflowing this day, friends. Please take advantage of this opportunity: no matter how great your sin may be, no matter how dark, the Lord is a Friend to all repentant hearts. Come to Him. Be not afraid. Lay your sorrows at the foot of the Cross. He wishes to cleanse you and heal you, to set you free. Allow Him. Allow Him to work wonders in you.
