Divine Mercy Cenacle

DIVINE MERCY PRAYER:

"Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful,
so that I may never suspect or judge from appearance,
but look for what is beautiful in my neighbor's soul
and come to their rescue."

St. Thomas currently does not have a regularly meeting Cenacle.

The Divine Mercy of Jesus was revealed to a Polish nun, Sister Faustina Kalwaska beginning in 1933. During these private revelations, Sister Faustina was asked to do many things including having the Image of Divine Mercy painted and helping to establish what we now know as Mercy Sunday; the first Sunday after Easter. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is prayed especially for the sick and dying and Jesus made many promises to those who would pray this Chaplet and celebrate His Mercy.
Mercy Sunday is dedicated to the devotion to the Divine Mercy promoted by St. Faustina, and is based upon an entry in St. Faustina's diary stating that anyone who participates in the Mass and receives the sacraments of confession and Eucharist (assuming they have made a valid, full, and sincere confession and have validly and worthily received Communion) on this day is assured by Jesus of full remission of sins.
According to the notebooks of Saint Faustina, Jesus made the following statements about this day: "On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity." (Diary of Saint Faustina, 699)
In 2000, the Jubilee year, Pope John Paul II officially instituted The Feast of Divine Mercy for the Roman Catholic Church.
