Second Sunday of Easter (“Divine Mercy Sunday”)

For April 7 & 8, 2018

“Pope John Paul II added a new title to this Sunday, but nothing else has changed. The Divine Mercy devotion—a private devotion—should not be part of the Sunday liturgy. It may, of course, be celebrated apart from Mass on this day.”
