Let us ask Christ for the gift of mercy

"Pope Francis urged Catholics to ask Christ for the “gift of mercy” in a letter marking the 90th anniversary of the first appearance of Jesus to St. Faustina Kowalska on Monday.

In a letter to Bishop Piotr Libera of PÅ‚ock, the pope noted that the first apparition took place on Feb. 22, 1931.

“Let us ask Christ for the gift of mercy. Let it engulf us and penetrate us. Let us have the courage to come back to Jesus to meet His love and mercy in the sacraments,” he said in the letter, dated Feb. 15."
