The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; the red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of My most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizing Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. ... Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold on him. St. Faustina's Diary
Today we attended my family's first Divine Mercy Sunday. Coincidentally, our parish had its first Divine Mercy Sunday. It was a beautiful service with a Benediction at the end. My children are used to the chaplet in song and enjoy it. The chaplet today was sung but used a different tune. We will definitely be making this a yearly event. It's so nice to add such richness to our family faith life.
I want this image to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter; that Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy. On that day, the depths of My Mercy will be open to all. Whoever will go to confession and Holy Communion on that day will receive complete forgiveness of sin and punishment. Mankind will not enjoy peace until it turns with confidence to My Mercy.
