Second Sunday of Easter (Divine Mercy Sunday)
Divine Mercy Sunday (the second Sunday of Easter) was proclaimed by Pope John Paul II in 2000. The celebration is an opportunity to reflect on how Gods mercy overcomes sin and offers a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that humankind will experi-ence in the years to come. (Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments)
