You may or may not know that the Second Sunday of Easter is also know as Divine Mercy Sunday. For the past several years an image of Divine Mercy has hung in our Marian Chapel over the Presider's chair.
Bishop Slattery has written to remind us that "to enrich that feast, the Church has graciously provided the faithful with the opportunity to obtain a plenary indulgence." To receive this indulgence four things need to be done:
* You must attend Mass and receive the Eucharist on Divine Mercy Sunday.
* You must celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation before or after the Feast.
* You must pray the Our Father, the apostles' Creed and some other prayer for the health and well-being of Pope Benedict XVI.
Perhaps the Chapel would be the best place to go for prayer, but another place is just fine as well.
