To get the most out of the graces of Divine Mercy Sunday, Fr. Gaitley explains: "If you go to confession so you're in a state of grace on Divine Mercy Sunday, receive Holy Communion on that day or on the vigil, and desire to receive the promised grace with trust, then you will receive the great grace of Divine Mercy Sunday."
