Special Blessings for Divine Mercy Sunday

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.

What are the WORKS OF MERCY!?

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.

Corporal Works of Mercy

The Corporal Works of Mercy 

are these kind acts by which we help our neighbors 

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

Spiritual Works of Mercy

The Spiritual Works of Mercy 

are acts of compassion, as listed below, 
by which we help our neighbors 

with their emotional and spiritual needs.

counsel the doubtful
instruct the ignorant
admonish sinners
comfort the afflicted
forgive offenses
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.  
through the DIVINE MERCY!!!

With that I will share more tomorrow!  
Many blessings and hugs my dear readers….friends….and family!
Kelly 🙂
