I need my Priest
"I need my Priests" Mercy Sunday - the Day the Gates of Heaven are Open.
On Mercy Sunday, April 30, 2000, before some two hundred and fifty thousand pilgrims and the television cameras of the world, Pope John Paul 11 canonized Saint Faustina Kowalska.
In doing so, he also approved the Divine Mercy Message and devotion by declaring the Second Sunday of Easter as "Divine Mercy Sunday" for the Universal Church.
In one of the most extraordinary homilies of his pontificate, Pope John Paul 11 repeated three time that Saint Faustina is "Gods gift to our time".
By this act of canonization of Saint Faustina, I intend today to pass this message on to the third millennium. I pass it on to all people, so that they will learn to know ever better the true face of God and the true face of their neighbour.
Love of Gold and love of one's neighbour are inseperable.
