5 Delicious Ice Cream Sundaes- Divine Mercy Sunday




A Brief Overview of the Devotion


Divine Mercy Sunday is the day on which we are reminded and called closer to Christ's immense love for us, which is poured out in grace and mercy to cover our sinfulness. In a vision to St. Faustina, Christ expressed wanting the Sunday after Easter to be a day where souls would be encouraged to take "shelter and refuge" in His mercy as "consolation."


(Diary, 699):

On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day are open all the divine floodgates through which graces flow.

This feast, according to the Roman Missal, falls on the Second Sunday in the Easter season and concludes the Easter Octave. This means that Divine Mercy Sunday is a moveable feast, and will not always fall on the same calendar day each year.


Many parishes will have their community come together at 3:00PM, the holy hour of the day, for a Divine Mercy Chaplet in front of this popular image.




For Your Domestic Church & Catholic Kitchen


As a fun play on words, the Divine Mercy Sundae became a Catholic household treat that many people now enjoy on this feast day.


The simple way to make this, and reflect the Divine Mercy image, is by scooping vanilla ice cream into a bowl, arranging blueberries on one side, strawberries, cherries, or raspberries on the other, and putting whip cream and a cherry on top to represent Jesus' heart.
