THE  FEAST OF THE DIVINE MERCY
                                                                                            
 During the course of Jesus' revelations to  Saint Faustina on the Divine Mercy He asked on numerous occasions that a feast day be dedicated to the Divine Mercy and that this feast be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter. The liturgical texts of that day, the 2nd Sunday of Easter, concern the institution of the Sacrament of Penance, the Tribunal of the Divine Mercy, and are thus already suited to the request of Our Lord. This Feast, which had already been granted to the nation of Poland and been celebrated within Vatican City, was granted to the Universal Church by Pope John Paul II on the occasion of the canonization of Sr. Faustina on 30 April 2000.


In a decree dated 23 May 2000, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated that "throughout the world the Second Sunday of Easter will receive the name Divine Mercy Sunday, a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that mankind will experience in the years to come." These papal acts represent the highest endorsement that the Church can give to a private revelation, an act of  papal infallibility proclaiming the certain sanctity of the mystic, and the granting of a universal feast, as requested by Our Lord to St. Faustina.
Concerning the Feast of Mercy Jesus said:
Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. (Diary 300)

I want the image solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter, and I want it to be venerated publicly so that every soul may know about it. (Diary 341)
This Feast emerged from the very depths of My mercy, and it is confirmed in the vast depths of my tender mercies. (Diary 420)
On one occasion, I heard these words: My daughter, tell the whole world about My Inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. 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.* [our emphasis] 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.

 Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy. (Diary 699)
Yes, the first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Me. You are to show mercy to our neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to absolve yourself from it. (Diary 742)
I want to grant complete pardon to the souls that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My mercy. (Diary 1109)

As you can see the Lord's desire for the Feast includes the solemn, public  veneration of the Image of Divine Mercy by the Church, as well as personal acts of veneration and mercy. The great promise for the individual soul is that a devotional act of sacramental penance and   communion will obtain for that soul the plenitude of the divine mercy on the Feast.
Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the divine Mercy which would begin on the Holy Friday. He gave an intention to pray for each day of the Novena.
In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:
“ On each day of the Novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy…On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls”.

Imitação.... 1.23
 
DA MEDITAÇÃO DA MORTE

 
Mui depressa chegará teu fim, neste mundo: vê, pois, como te preparas: hoje, o homem está vivo e amanhã já não existe.
Tirado que seja da vista, logo foge da lembrança.
0h ! Insensatez e dureza do coração humano, que cuida somente das coisas presentes, sem olhar para as futuras !
De tal modo te deves haver em tuas ações e pensamentos, como se hoje mesmo houvesses de morrer.
Se fosse pura a tua consciência,não temerías muito a morte.
Melhor seria evitar o pecado, que fugir da morte.

YOU ARE MY FAITH

Oh Jesus, people usually think that the faith in You was born by miracles done in the roman Palestine. Those miracles caused only astonishment and they only made  believable your message.  It was the way in which you introduced yourself and explained your thinking that was unusual. It is easy to point out limits, defects and faults in Moses, David and in the Prophets. In You, Jesus, everything is majestic and brightly without any ostentation.
In You everything is human an lovable. This perfect and magnificent image origins from the pen of Your Evangelists, people having no bearing on literary works.

DE LA FE Y DE LA PRÁCTICA EUCARÍSTICA

DEPENDE HOY EL FUTURO DE LA IGLESIA

“La Eucaristía y la Santa Comunión no son una cosa, ni siquiera la más santa, sino una Persona: el mismo Jesucristo. Mientras que la adorable Persona de Cristo, escondida bajo las humildes especies sacramentales, sea tratada de una manera tan banal, indelicada y superficial al día de hoy, en la Iglesia no podrá producirse un verdadero progreso espiritual.

"Io sono il pane vivo della vita;
chi viene a me non avrà più fame"

PENSIERO DELLA DOMENICA
+ VIDEO CORRELATO

In questa domenica la Liturgia ci propone un brano del  Vangelo di Giovanni (6.24-35) dove la folla, entusiasta per i miracoli compiuti da Gesù, è in cerca di Lui, che forse era andato verso Cafarnao: ...lo trovarono di là dal mare e gli dissero: Rabbì, quando sei venuto qua?.
Gesù rispose loro: “In verità in verità vi dico: voi mi cercato non perché avete visto dei segni, ma perché avete mangiato di quel pane e vi siete saziati. Datevi da fare non per il cibo che non dura, ma per il cibo che rimane per la vita eterna e che il Figlio dell’uomo vi darà. Perché su di Lui, il Padre, ha messo il suo sigillo”.

Croce dei Giovani, parlaci.

Croce dei Giovani, parlaci.

Parlaci profondamente di Amore,
quello totale di Cristo per noi.
Abbiamo bisogno di saper che lassù
Qualcuno ci ama davvero.
Parlaci di perdono come Gesù ha fatto
quando era attaccato alla Croce.
