Jesus spoke to St Faustina Kowalska of His desire to pour out extra-ordinary graces of mercy upon sinners each year on one special day, the Feast of Divine Mercy celebrated the Sunday after Easter. He said to Sister Faustina:

“I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and a shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”
