“Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, the Octave of Easter, observed by Roman Catholics, as well as some Anglicans. It is originally based on the Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy that Saint Faustina Kowalska reported as part of her encounter with Jesus, and is associated with special promises from Jesus . . .” (Read more at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Mercy_Sunday/ )

“My image already is in your soul. I desire that there be a Feast of Mercy. I want this image, which you will paint with a brush, to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter; that Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy.” (Diary, 49; Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska)

“John XXIII and John Paul II were canonized [this Divine Mercy] Sunday by Pope Francis in an unprecedented ceremony witnessed by huge crowds gathered in St. Peters Square in Vatican City. Millions more around the world watched as two former pontiffs were for the first time installed as saints in a dual canonization. . .”  (Read more at http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/27/world/pope-canonization/)
