Today was Divine Mercy Sunday!!!
I’ve had a special love for the image Jesus instructed Saint Faustina to have painted during one of her visions of him. There is something about the image that speaks freedom to me. I find it peaceful, empowering, amazing.
I felt beyond blessed participating in a chaplet before Mass….and then attending a holy hour at St. Mary’s Cathedral from 3-4. The hour consisted of Exposition…Chaplet….quiet prayer time…benediction. (Check out the links I have added to learn more about Exposition and Benediction!)
I shared earlier this week (follow this link to read more) how I would go through all the WORKS OF MERCY over the next couple of weeks!
I am excited to really reflect on each Work of Mercy and how it pertains to my life…how I have been living them or how I can work on one more.
Works of Mercy
The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy
are actions we can perform that extend
God’s compassion and mercy to those in need.
The Corporal Works of Mercy
with their material and physical needs.
feed the hungry
give drink to the thirsty
clothe the naked
shelter the homeless
visit the sick
visit the imprisoned
bury the dead
The Spiritual Works of Mercy
with their emotional and spiritual needs.
counsel the doubtful
instruct the ignorant
comfort the afflicted
bear wrongs patiently
pray for the living and the dead
My only regret today was I didn’t
have the opportunity to share with more friends and loved ones
about the wonderful hour that took place at St. Mary’s.
But I WILL NOT make that mistake again.
I WILL TAKE THE TIME
to SPREAD THE AMAZING LOVE OF JESUS…
through the DIVINE MERCY!!!
With that I will share more tomorrow!
Many blessings and hugs my dear readers….friends….and family!
