"Inspectio Cordis": Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7

A weekly web series by Fr. Thaddaeus Lancton, MIC, introduces us to the meditations for this Sunday's Mass by the Marian Founder.

Day 7 of the Divine Mercy Novena

Jesis said, "Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE AND GLORIFY MY MERCY, and immerse them in My mercy. These souls sorrowed most over my Passion and entered most deeply into My spirit.

I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death."

Jesus said, "Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM MY CHURCH, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.

"I put my trust in the right place – Divine Mercy!"

“When you are a senior and living alone, Mass and Divine Mercy are something to look forward to. It helps to keep my attitude positive and my trust in the right place."

To Receive Divine Mercy, Give Divine Mercy

This Easter season, as members of God's family, the Church, we are invited - even obligated - to accept His name, His identity, as our own: Divine Mercy. Let the light of eternity in with your works of mercy, natural acts taken up and made radiant by the Sacraments, by uniting your good works with the works of Jesus Christ.
