Divine Mercy Sunday
This Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. Given the peculiarities of this year, the requirements for the Divine Mercy Sunday plenary indulgence are as follows:
- A person may recite the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, “to implore from Almighty God the end o the epidemic, relief for those who are afflicted and eternal salvation for those whom the Lord has called to Himself”. Unlike in other years, this need not be done in a church or chapel.
- A person must fulfill the usual conditions of complete detachment from the affection for sin, sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion and prayer according to the Holy Father’s intentions as soon as possible and not within the usual ten-day limit.
