The Sunday after Easter Sunday is now commonly known as Divine Mercy Sunday or Day of Divine Mercy.
Faustina Kowalska, a Polish nun, reported Visions and Visitations from Jesus and conversations with him. He asked her to paint the vision of his merciful divinity being poured from his Sacred Heart and specifically asked for a feast of Divine Mercy to be established on the first Sunday after Easter Sunday, so that mankind would take refuge
At St Mary’s we live streamed a Holy Hour during which the Divine Mercy Chaplet was prayed using the traditional chant. As usual the Holy Hour concluded with the short service of Benediction.
