Divine Mercy Sunday (the Sunday after
Easter Sunday) might be the greatest
day of the year due to the immense
amount of mercy that Christ pours out
upon the earth. Our Lord Jesus said,
“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 graces flow
are opened. Let no soul fear to draw
near to Me, even though its sins be as
scarlet…Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the
Fount of My Mercy.” - Saint Faustina, Diary, 699.

DOMINGO DE LA DIVINA MISERICORDIA
DIVINA MISERICORDIA
12 DE ABRIL DE 2015
Alabamos al Padre que manifiesta su gran misericordia
en Cristo resucitado por obra del Espíritu Santo. Hemos
nacido de nuevo a la vida del Espíritu como fruto de la
Resurrección de Cristo. Esto es fuente de esperanza y
de alegría. Estamos llamados a una herencia
incorruptible, pura, imperecedera que nos está
reservada en el cielo. Hemos de caminar con la mirada
puesta en el cielo donde la misericordia de Cristo
resucitado ha de triunfar definitivamente sobre
nosotros. La fuerza del Espíritu nos custodia y
fortalece. Caminamos alegres en la esperanza aunque
tengamos que sufrir pruebas diversas que verifican la
riqueza de la fe que profesamos. Nos apoyamos en la
misericordia de Cristo que no puede fallar.
La Misericordia del Señor se revela a los Apóstoles en la
aparición del día de la Pascua y se repite a los ocho
días. A
su vez, los apóstoles han de ser portadores de
la Misericordia del Señor que se prolonga en la Iglesia.
Nosotros, también recibimos la misericordia del Señor y
hemos de comunicarla.

Hoy, el segundo domingo después de la Pascua es la
fiesta de la Divina Misericordia.
Este mensaje y la
devoción a Jesús como la Divina Misericordia está basada
en los escritos de Santa Faustina Kowalska, que relatan las
revelaciones que ella recibió sobre la Misericordia de Dios.
El mensaje de Misericordia es que Dios nos ama a todos,
no importa cuán grande sean nuestras faltas. Él quiere que
reconozcamos que Su Misericordia es más grande que
nuestros pecados. El primer elemento de la Devoción a la
Divina Misericordia que fue revelado a la Hermana
Faustina fue la Imagen, el 22 de Febrero del 1931. Jesús
se le aparece con rayos de luz irradiando desde su Corazón
y le dice: “Pinta una imagen según el modelo que ves, y
firma: “Jesús, en Ti confío”. Deseo que esta imagen sea
venerada primero en esta capilla y luego en el mundo
entero." (Diario 47) Prometo que el alma que venere esta
imagen no perecerá.” (Diario 48). Juan Pablo II canonizó
a Santa Faustina el 30 de abril de 2000. Ese mismo día
instituyó oficialmente la Fiesta de la Divina Misericordia,
el segundo domingo después de la Pascua, tal como Jesús
había pedido a Santa Faustina.
ORDENACION DEL PADRE MARIO
El lunes 20 de Abril a las 2:00 p.m. en la Catedral de San
Mateo nuestro párroco, el Padre Mario Dorsonville será
ordenado como Obispo Auxiliar de Washington. Esperamos
contar con su asistencia a este tan importante evento para
nuestra comunidad. Los esperamos a todos!
