Thoughts on the Divine Mercy

In his homily for the Feast of the Divine Mercy, Deacon Andrew quoted these words from St Faustina's diary:
Ask my faithful servant (a priest) that, on this day, he tell the whole world of my great mercy; that whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to my mercy.

Deacon Andrew ended his homily with these words:
I read a lovely reflection this week that said the message of mercy ( the message of this Divine Mercy feast) is really very simple - it's as easy as ABC.
A- Ask for his mercy
B- Be merciful to others
C- Completely trust in Jesus
When we do that, we will truly have that peace that can only come from God - that peace which we all long for.
