Everyone is invited to Holy Redeemer Church on Sunday, April 8 for the diocesan-wide celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday. The event will include a talk by Dr. Bryan Thatcher on Divine Mercy followed by Eucharistic Adoration with the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.
The message of mercy is that God loves us — all of us — no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dr. Bryan S. Thatcher, MD, of Tampa, FL, is a retired medical doctor who travels the world speaking on the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, the message of Divine Mercy, and his personal conversion. He and his wife, Susan, have seven children. In 1996 he founded Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy (EADM), now a lay apostolate of the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception. EADM is now active in 35 countries worldwide, and received three special Apostolic Blessings from the late Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, for its work. The ministry of Eucharistic Apostles promotes the notion that Divine Mercy is more than a message or devotion, rather, it is a “Way of Life.”
