Divine Mercy Conference
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Praised be the Lord Jesus for His Divine Mercy!
St. LUCIE, FL (JANUARY 22, 2009) - Well here we are again. The Lord has graciously given us another year and by His grace, we can proclaim from the rooftops the wonderful gifts that He wants to give to each and every living soul. We find ourselves confronted with many issues, but nothing compares with the importance of saving souls. It is our duty, as Apostles of Divine Mercy to do everything that we possible can to help Jesus save the lost.
This year we will start with a special conference geared towards helping priests to correctly celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. This is a very high calling of which we are not in the least bit qualified, but we should all keep reflecting on the words of Jesus to St. Faustina "Do whatever is within your power to spread devotion to My mercy. I will make up for what you lack. Tell aching mankind to snuggle close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace." (Diary, 1074)
We must remember as Apostles we are called to our main purpose and that is to spread Our Lord's message of Divine Mercy. Our Lord said "tell souls about this great Mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near." (Diary, 965) It seems that the "day of Our Lord's justice" is nearer than ever. We cannot lose courage, but be ever the more vigilant and look to the rainbow on the other side when Our Lord will restore the face of the earth and there will be peace.
Our primary goal is to tell the whole world about Our Lord's inconceivable Mercy that is available on Divine Mercy Sunday, Our Lord' said, "the soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day are open all the Divine floodgates through which graces flow. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet." (Diary, 699)
We must ask the Lord how he wants us to best tell the "whole world" about His mercy. Our website is one way because it goes all over the world through the internet. Every year we find that priests and even bishops have used material for homilies, articles, and letters from our website. Praised be the Lord Jesus!
We have found that the greatest progress towards saving souls comes from priests who know how to correctly celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. That is why this year we have, by the grace of God, organized the Divine Mercy Conference for Priests at the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe in Orlando, Florida. This location is easily accessible from many parts of the world with many direct flights.
As we have said before, too many Divine Mercy Sunday celebrations are in a way some type of "party for devotees" when they should be "a refuge for sinners". I often reflect on the words of Jesus to St. Faustina "The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness" (Diary 1397). There should be an all out effort every year to go out and to search for the lost sheep. That would make Jesus happy.
How can we settle for anything less from any parish when Jesus suffers so much? It is time that the veil be lifted and we let the truth be known.... Jesus is coming and He said "Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity.... Tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near" (Diary 965).
The Feast of Mercy (Divine Mercy Sunday) is in a way, the fulfillment of the Old Testament "Day of Atonement" which was an annual feast that prepared them for the final judgment. In the same way, Divine Mercy Sunday is an opportunity for everyone to be completely ready for judgment. How can we let anyone perish into Hell when we know of this great feast? Priests are especially called to save souls.
Do everything that you possibly can , and sometimes, that means begging priests and bishops to understand what Divine Mercy Sunday really is.... a refuge for all sinners and the last hope of salvation. It was no accident that Pope John Paul died on the Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday. That was a sign from God, no doubt. We all need to wake up and realize that we all need to get real busy helping Our Lord to save souls.
I want to invite each and every one of you to our conference in Orlando and I want you to do the best that you can to get every priest that you know to prepare for and celebrate Mercy Sunday in a way that will make all of Heaven rejoice. Go to our website: www.DivineMercySunday.com to register or call us at 1-888-732-0722.
If you can't be we us at the conference, please consider getting our DVD "How to Celebrate Mercy Sunday". You can make copies of it and give it to your priests and bishops. This will be a great act of mercy in itself and will help to save many souls. We can't let any souls perish when Our Lord wants to save each and everyone of us.
If I can be of any help to you, please contact me by e-mail or phone me at our toll-free number 1-888-732-0722. May the Lord Jesus bless your every act of love.
Sincerely yours in Christ Jesus, for all souls,
