The image of the Divine Mercy, which Our Lord requested to be solemnly blessed and venerated on Divine Mercy Sunday will be dedicated in our parish after each Mass next weekend. Pope John Paul II said that the image portrays the Risen Christ bringing Mercy to the world. Our Lord said, “I want the image to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter and I want it to be venerated publicly so that every soul may know about it.” Jesus said to St. Faustina, “I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image the signature; Jesus, I Trust in You.” “The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the cross.…Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him.”
