Jesus said: "I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners". Whoever approached the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment" (Diary, 300), and also, "On this 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. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet" (Diary, 699).
