Jesus revealed to Saint Faustina asking that a special feast day be dedicated to the Divine Mercy. And that this feast be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, the 2nd Sunday of Easter.
The liturgical texts of that day, concern the institution of the Sacrament of Penance, the Tribunal of the Divine Mercy, and are therefore already well suited to the request of Jesus to St Faustina.
This Feast, which had already been granted to Poland and been celebrated within Vatican City, was granted to the entire Catholic Church by Pope Saint John Paul II on the day St Faustina was canonized, 30 April 2000.
The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated, in a decree dated 23 May 2000, that "throughout the world the Second Sunday of Easter will receive the name Divine Mercy Sunday, a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that mankind will experience in the years to come.".
