||Saint John Paul II
Granted a Plenary Indulgence for Feast of Mercy.
Our Lord invites us to do more
On 29 June 2002, the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See promulgated a decree creating new indulgences that may be gained by the faithful in connection with the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday. This decree grants a plenary indulgence to those who comply with all the conditions established, and a partial indulgence to those who incompletely fulfill the conditions.
I. The usual conditions for every plenary indulgence:
- Sacramental confession [according to previously issued norms, within abut 20 days before or after]
- Eucharistic communion [according to previously issued norms, preferably on the day, or the days before or after]
- Prayer for the intentions of Supreme Pontiff [certain prayers are not specified]
II. The specific conditions for this Indulgence On Divine Mercy Sunday
- In any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honour of Divine Mercy
- or, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus (e.g. Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!")
- A partial indulgence, granted to the faithful who, at least with a contrite heart, pray to the merciful Lord Jesus a legitimately approved invocation. [e.g. Jesus I trust in You. My Jesus mercy. or any other approved invocation]
||April 30, 2000 St. John Paul
canonized blessed Faustina, Saint Faustina
declaring the first Sunday after Easter as
Divine Mercy Sunday
||The Easter Octave has always been centered on the theme of Divine Mercy and forgiveness.
Divine Mercy Sunday, therefore, point us to the merciful love of God that lies behind the whole Paschal Mystery — the whole mystery of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ — made present for us in the Eucharist
