Saint Valentine parishioners Willie and Corrie volunteered at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, during the weekend of the Second Sunday of Easter. Willie and Corrie helped people attend mass and participate in a novena to the Divine Mercy.
The Second Sunday of Easter is known as Divine Mercy Sunday.
“I do not want to punish aching mankind,” Jesus once told St. Faustina, “but I desire to heal it, pressing it to my merciful heart.” He instructed St. Faustina to have an image of him painted and disseminated along with the words, “Jesus, I trust in you,” to help the faithful come to accept God’s mercy. The rays coming from Christ’s heart in the image, she said, symbolize the blood and water that poured out from Jesus’ pierced side to cleanse and heal us.
