About the Divine Mercy devotion, and Divine Mercy Sunday 

The Divine Mercy is a devotion to Jesus Christ as revealed in apparitions of Jesus to a Polish religions sister, Faustina Kowalska in the 1920s and 1930s.  The devotion focusses of what Kowalska's diary describes as "God's loving mercy" towards all people, especially for sinners.

Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of Easter in each  year:  hymn suggestions based on the readings for this day are based on the lectionary readings for that week in:
