2017 Divine Mercy novena and celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday

On Sunday, April 23, 2017, St. Bernard celebrated the Divine Mercy novena and Divine Mercy Sunday.

The nine-day event was filled with prayer, adoration, song and worship.

Our Lord’s promise of complete forgiveness is both a reminder and a call. 

It is a reminder that he is truly present and truly alive in the Eucharist, filled with love for us and waiting for us to turn to him with trust. 

And it is a call for us all to be washed clean in his love through confession and holy communion no matter how terrible our sins.

He is offering us a new start.

At the Mass

By Father Paul Bergeron

"Once we take our eyes off the Lord, our merciful Lord, we fall," Father Paul Bergeron tells us in his homily for our Divine Mercy Mass. "Sometimes it's embarrassing. Sometimes we think we get away with it. But we fall. And Jesus doesn't want that for us. So always keep your eyes on the Lord. Always know and believe that the Divine Mercy is always with us and with him. We cannot fall. Keep your eyes on the Lord. Keep your eyes on his kingdom, and everything will be given to you, all of your heart's desire, all of the joy, the peace, the love, the compassion, that we search for but cannot find in this life for eternity, which can only be found through the divine, merciful rays of Jesus."
