On Divine Mercy Sunday, April 12th, we celebrate the unending mercy of Jesus Christ as written in the revelations of St. Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), an uneducated Polish nun. The message is nothing new, but is a reminder of what the Church has always taught through Sacred Scripture and Tradition: that God is merciful and forgiving, and that we, too, must show mercy and forgiveness.
