Divine Mercy Sunday

God yearns to forgive us.  He has so much Mercy He asked for His Divine Mercy to be celebrated in a special way. As a result the Church gives us Divine Mercy Sunday.  A day on which we can be granted a plenary indulgence which removes all of the temporal punishment our sins have merited. While our sins are forgiven in the sacrament of Confession the punishment due to us for our sins is not. But because God loves us so much He has had His Church define ways we can avoid suffering the just punishment for our sins.

Check this site for a description of what you need to do to be granted a plenary indulgence on Divine Mercy Sunday.
