Divine Mercy Sunday is the culmination of the novena to the Divine Mercy of Jesus, a devotion given to St. Faustina by Christ himself. It is stated in her diary that anyone who participates in the Mass and receives the sacraments of Confession and the Eucharist on this day is assured by Jesus of full remission of their sins.
This devotion was actively promoted by Pope John Paul II, who canonized St. Faustina and designated the Sunday after Easter as the Feast of the Divine Mercy. John Paul II, who died in 2005 on the vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday, was beatified on Divine Mercy Sunday –May 1, 2011 by his successor, Pope Benedict the XVI. On April 27, 2014-Divine Mercy Sunday, Pope John Paul II was canonized ~ Pope Saint John Paull II.
