Regina Coeli

Last edited 18th April 2012

Every Sunday, the Holy Father meets with a crowd of people in St. Peter's Square to pray the Angelus. But during the Easter season, he prays what we call the "Regina Coeli" instead - which is Latin for 'Queen of Heaven'. It is a good reminder that the Easter season continues until Pentecost, when we will go back to praying the Angelus. Watch this video for more.

Pope John Paul II's Divine Mercy Sunday Homily - 2001

Last edited 12th April 2012

"Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore", (Rev 1:17-18). Visit this article to read the full text of Pope John Paul II's homily, on the first universal celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday in 2001. The Feast of the Divine Mercy was very close to JPII's heart during his pontificate, and it remains an important part of his legacy - he died on the Vigil of the Divine Mercy, and was beatified on Divine Mercy Sunday on 1 May 2011.

Divine Mercy Sunday - Time to Celebrate God's Mercy

Last edited 12th April 2012

Worried about the world situation? About your spiritual life? Jesus gives us the hope-filled solution. Seek and accept his mercy. Start in the Eastertide celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday, then continue with the devotion. Jesus himself called for this devotion and feast. He made his urgent, essential request through Polish mystic St. Faustina Kowalska, the first saint canonized in the new millennium by John Paul II.

Jesus Died for You - Do You Believe?

Last edited 5th April 2012

It's Holy Week, and we are preparing to remember how God loved us to death. It is easier for us to think that Jesus died for all humanity, than for us to think that Jesus died for 'me'. Do you really believe that Jesus died for you personally? Watch this video for a beautiful reflection on the Death of Jesus.
