Details on the Requested Feast of Mercy

"...I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners.... It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy." Ntbk.II:699(1)

"My image already is in your soul. I desire that there be a Feast of Mercy. I want this image (2).... be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter; that Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy."Ntbk.I:49

"And who knows anything about this feast? No one! Even those who should be proclaiming My mercy and teaching people about it often do not know about it themselves. That is why I want the image... to be venerated publicly so that every soul may know about it." Ntbk.I:341

"I desire that priests proclaim this great mercy of Mine toward souls of sinners....Distrust of my chosen souls causes Me even greater pain: despite My inexhaustible love for them they do not trust Me. Even My death was not enough for them. Woe to the soul that abuses these [gifts]".Ntbk.I:50

"I desire that this image be displayed in public on the first Sunday after Easter. That Sunday is the Feast of Mercy."Ntbk.I:88

Details on the Second Coming

(Our Lady Speaking to Sister Faustina) "...I gave the Savior to the world; as for you, you have to speak y\to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Saviour, but as a just Judge. Oh, how terrible is that day!... Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still the time for [granting] mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day. Fear nothing. Be faithful to the end...." Ntbk.II:635

"...I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. ...tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near." Ntbk.II:965

"...let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy;..." Ntbk.II:848

"...before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: ....the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights..." Ntbk.I:83.
