Be Transformed by Divine Mercy

4/21/2017

Sister Gaudia Skass of the Congregation of Our Lady of Mercy

Sister Gaudia Skass of the Congregation of Our Lady of Mercy displays an image of the Divine Mercy. She is a member of the same religious community as St. Faustina Kowalska — the visionary who received the message of Divine Mercy — and was featured in the Knights of Columbus' mercy video series.

“The flames of mercy are burning me — clamoring to be spent;
I want to pour them out upon these souls. …
No soul will be justified until it turns with confidence to my mercy,
and this is why the first Sunday after Easter is to be the feast of Mercy.
On that day, priests are to tell everyone about
my great and unfathomable mercy.”
— From St. Faustina Kowalska’s Divine Mercy in My Soul

As Catholics throughout the world celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, April 23, we invite our brother Knights to learn more about the Divine Mercy, one of St. John Paul II’s favorite devotions.

First, view the Knights of Columbus #MercyStories YouTube series. The series focuses on Catholics whose lives have been transformed by their devotion to the Divine Mercy message. To watch the videos, click here.

We also invite you to read an article in Columbia magazine by Father Michael Gaitley, MIC, author of 33 Days to Merciful Love: A Preparation for Consecration to Divine Mercy. To read the article, check out the Columbia Online Edition.

Prayers to Divine Mercy may be found here. Information on the promulgation of the feast day and the indulgences attached to devotions in honor of Divine Mercy is available from the Vatican’s website, vatican.va.
