The Divine Mercy Message and Devotion

The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.

The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering A B C: A – Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world. B – Be merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us. C – Completely trust in Jesus. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive. This message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska.

Mass in Cathedral on 12th October to mark 80 years of Apostolic Work in Armagh: To celebrate the 80th year of the work of Apostolic Workers in the Archdiocese of Armagh, Archbishop Eamon Martin will celebrate a special Mass of Thanksgiving in St Patrick’s Cathedral on Saturday 12th October at 1pm. Many missionary priests will join for the celebration in the Extraordinary Month of Mission. The organisation was started by Miss Margaret Colgan in 1939 and has provided wonderful support, both financially and materially for the last 80 years. The needs of the Missions are still great and they range from water, food, medicines, education, transport, Churches, Sacred Items, Altar Linens, Vestments etc. All are invited to join as we celebrate this special occasion.
