In 1931, Jesus appeared to the Polish nun, Saint Faustina Kowalska. She saw Jesus clothed in white, with His right hand raised in blessing and His left hand held at His breast. From there, two rays came forth, one red and the other pale. Jesus instructed her to paint this image, with the words, “Jesus, I trust in You,” and then explained that the pale ray is the Water which makes souls righteous and the red ray is the Blood which is the life of souls. Jesus promised to protect those who venerate the image, directing public celebration of the Feast of Mercy on the first Sunday after Easter, and bestowed upon her the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. This mission was fulfilled on April 30, 2000, when Pope John Paul II canonized Sr. Faustina. On the same day, he surprised the entire world by establishing Divine Mercy Sunday as a feast day the entire Church; it is to occur the first Sunday after Easter. On that day, Pope John Paul II declared, “This is the happiest day of my life.” Given all these connections to Divine Mercy and St. Faustina, is it any wonder that the Great Mercy Pope died on the Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday, April 2, 2005?
