Next weekend is Divine Mercy Sunday. It’s a day we, on the octave of Easter, honor our devotion to the Divine Mercy that Saint Faustina Kowalska shared as part of her encounter with Jesus. St. Faustina shares that, on the feast of Divine Mercy, we can obtain extraordinary grace – especially if we receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Communion on that day. Additionally, the Church grants a plenary indulgence with the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
It’s a strange time we’re in, with no Mass let alone the ability to receive reconciliation. It’s a strange time as a business owner, with stores and restaurants closed all around us. I wanted to find a way to support both some of my favorite small businesses, as well as celebrate the mercy found in Divine Mercy Sunday. So, I thought I’d share these beautiful Divine Mercy gifts – each handcrafted in anticipation of the feast day – with you! Click on the name of the shop to learn more about each item.
- FAITH AND FABRIC: Of course, I had to start with our Sew-a-Saint dolls! These ultra-beginner friendly projects are perfect for your first sewing lesson, and make the perfect snuggle toy after the sewing is done. Each comes printed on a fat quarter of fabric, complete with directions on how to make. (Image intentionally blurred to protect copyright.)

- IN THE LOFT: This Divine Mercy Jesus is 3 1/2″-4″ tall and 3/4″ deep. I cut the figure from pine, round the edges and sand smooth. Then I paint with a soft blend of non toxic acrylic paint and coat with a satin protective finish. JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU is written on the bottom.
- PELICAN CATHOLIC GIFTS: This is a red and white glass bead Divine Mercy Catholic Chaplet. Featuring a Divine Mercy Centerpiece and Diving Mercy Medal that says “Jesus, I trust in you.” on the reverse.

- VIANNEY BEADS: Novenas are a wonderful way to pray for a person or a special intention, but it can be all too easy to lose track of what day you’re on. These novena trackers feature 9 beads that slide just like a set of sacrifice beads to help you visually track your novena progress!
