UPDATE! Divine Mercy Plenary Indulgence given daily in 2020 in March due to Coronavirus Outbreak!
The feast day was made a universal feast
within the Church on April 30th, 2000
which, on this very day, Pope St. John Paul II declared,
"was personally the greatest day of my life!"
He also stated that he believed that his entire papacy was for the purpose of making the Message of Divine Mercy known.
Divine Mercy Sunday
The feast day of God's Merciful Love,
the feast day of the Extraordinary Promise of our Eucharistic King Jesus when He simplifies the Plenary Indulgence
so that a soul can easily receive the effects of a New Baptism
when all sin and all punishment due to sin is washed away
by doing as He asks and that is:
Confessing sin with sorrow and clinging to His Merciful Love during Holy Communion
and in this way receiving forgiveness of all sin and all punishment due to the sin
in effect, "a New Baptism - the complete cleansing of the soul!"
and in this way God can do as Acts 2:17-21, Jn 7:37-39, Jn 14:16-18 reveals
and pour out His Holy Spirit of Truth into the hearts of all mankind
when it's soul is cleansed and prepared for His Coming!
Might mankind have been offered this Simplified Plenary Indulgence - daily- during the year of the Coronavirus of 2020
in order to prepare each soul for God's coming Illumination of Conscience (1 Cor 15:51-52, Mt 12:36-37, Lk 12:2-3)
which prepares mankind for God's promised New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle of Acts 2:17-21, Deut 30:6, Mk 10:8
It is something to consider, especially since in 2015 - 2016 Pope Francis gave an Extraordinary Year of Divine Mercy too.
2000 Divine Mercy Sunday made a universal feast in the church
2015-2016 - Extraordinary Year of divine Mercy Sunday
2020 - Daily Plenary Indulgence offered due to Coronavirus outbreak
2024 - Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday is the day before God's 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse
