Divine Mercy Sunday Happenings

April 27th, 2011, Promulgated by benanderson

My wife heard on the radio that our former parish (Saint Pius Tenth in Chili) is doing it up for Divine Mercy Sunday. SPX is led by LEM Bill Rabjohn (if anyone is fit for the job – it’s him) with Assisting Priest Fr. Mike Mayer (blog here). If you know of other Divine Mercy Sunday happenings – let us know.

note: This is not a good post to discuss the validity of LEMs. If you wish to do that, comment on Diane’s earlier post.

    Following the Traditional Latin High Mass, we will have our Divine Mercy devotions. Mass starts at 1:30 and we start immediately after Mass with the devotions, so by 3 p.m. we are chanting the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Mass and devotions are at Saint Stanislaus Church in Rochester at the corner of Norton Street and Hudson Avenue. There will be some time of quiet reflection and followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, in Latin, too.
    Our Traditional Mass choir and schola will be singing a wide range of Renaissance music, including composers such as Byrd, Gesualdo and Viadana, in addition to our schola sing the Gregorian chant propers.

    There is ample parking and security, so anyone who wishes to attend will be most cordially welcomed.

    I think this is great news! It seems to me that many in our diocese are less than enthusiastic when it comes to this particular feast day. I pray that the observance of Divine Mercy Sunday will continue to develop throughout the DOR.

    I have read the “rules” for the plenary indulgence associated with Mercy Sunday. One is supposed to receive the sacrament of Penance (as part of it). So if I go to St. Stan’s, would it work to go to Penance Saturday night? I know it’s preferable to go that day, but then there’s something about going soon. Can anyone explain this in layman’s terms-I’m confused 🙂
