"Dear brothers and sisters, let us be enveloped by the mercy of God; let us trust in his patience, which always gives us more time. Let us find the courage to return to his house, to dwell in his loving wounds, allowing ourselves be loved by him and to encounter his mercy in the sacraments”.

"We will feel his wonderful tenderness, we will feel his embrace, and we too will become more capable of mercy, patience, forgiveness and love”...

"What a beautiful truth of faith this is for our lives: the mercy of God! God's love for us is so great, so deep; it is an unfailing love, one which always takes us by the hand and supports us, lifts us up and leads us on,"

"How beautiful is this view of Jesus-what tenderness -. Brothers and sisters let us never lose trust in the patience and mercy of God"

“God is not impatient like us, who often want everything all at once, even in our dealings with other people. God is patient with us because he loves us, and those who love are able to understand, to hope, to inspire confidence; they do not give up, they do not burn bridges, they are able to forgive”. The Lord never tires of forgiving. We are the ones who tire of asking forgiveness.”

“Let us never get tired. Let us never get tired. He is the loving Father who always forgives, who has that heart of mercy for all of us. And let us also learn to be merciful with everyone. Let us call upon the intercession of the Virgin who has held in her arms the Mercy of God made human”.

“God always waits for us, even when we have left him behind, He is never far from us, and if we return to him, he is ready to embrace us”

Pope Francis chose April 27, 2014 the "Feast of Divine Mercy" as a very significant date, for the canonization of Blessed John Paul II. The Feast was instituted by Pope John Paul II on April 30, 2000 when he canonized St. Faustina Kowalska.

 Since 2000, The Catholic Church has celebrated the Feast of Divine Mercy on the second Sunday of Easter, just as Jesus had asked Saint. Faustina Kowalska (Diary, 49)
