Divine Mercy Sunday 2016 - A Perspective on the Blessed Sacrament April 3, 2016

There is a great connection between Divine Mercy and the Resurrection. Jesus Christ specifically requested that the Feast of Divine Mercy be celebrated on the Second Sunday of Easter.

Here we have the culmination and conclusion of salvation history; Divine Mercy which is Eucharistically  connected with Easter Sunday which is the Resurrection. This is because the final act, the greatest act, of God's Mercy will be the manifestation of his glory from the Blessed Sacrament.

Now, he is hidden in the Blessed Sacrament. One Day he will manifest his glory and all nations and all peoples will see it. This will not be "His Second Coming". His second coming will be like the sunrise.

What I mean is the revelation of his Eucharistic Glory will be like the first streaks of dawn.

The light of His glory will be his love and mercy.

These are the two rays Saint Faustina saw radiating from the Blessed Sacrament. The white rays representing His "Divine Love" while the pink rays represent His "Divine Mercy".

These are the rays all humanity will one day see.

As Saul, was converted by "A Light that suddenly flashed around him" (Acts 9:3), so will the whole world be converted by the glorious light coming from the Blessed Sacrament. This is what Saint Peter calls "the coming of the great and splendid day of the Lord and everyone shall be saved who calls on the name of the Lord." (Acts 2:20).

Archbishop Pearce, is a Holy Catholic Bishop who lives in Providence, Rhode Island. After he retired as Bishop of Suva, Fiji he was asked to translate the Diary of Saint Faustina from Polish to English.

According to Archbishop Pearce, the most outstanding vision of Saint Faustina was before the Blessed Sacrament.

With each Holy Hour, made Rays would emanate from the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ and encircle the entire world. Every Man, Woman, and Child experiences a new effect of  God's Love and Mercy for every "Holy Hour" made.

This is how much Jesus Christ appreciates your Holy Hour !! You so touch the Heart of Jesus Christ by coming to him in the Blessed Sacrament that you touch the "Heart of all Humanity"'.

You win countless graces for many who are far away from God to be converted and come back to the Heart of their God. Your Holy Hour saves souls and brings many people to Heaven who otherwise would have been lost and who would have gone to Hell.

This is called "REPARATION"!! You make up for what is lacking in the members of the "Mystical Body of Christ" by satisfying God's Divine Justice and opening up the floodgates of his Divine Mercy on the whole world.

Jesus Christ wants everyone to be saved and to go to Heaven. He said "When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself. (John 12:32).

In our prayers before Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament we lift up all humanity to his "Merciful Heart" and beg him to have mercy on all.

Conclusion :

A Chapel of "Perpetual Adoration" is a powerhouse of prayer exploding in graces benefiting all mankind. The effect and influence of a single holy hour of prayer is the best for the good of all mankind.

Happy and Holy Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday to one and all.
