Divine Mercy Sunday Celebration with Fruit Platter and Sundaes

This post contains affiliate links.

This past Sunday, April 23, 2017, was the first Sunday after Easter and the first Sunday after Easter is designated as Divine Mercy Sunday.   To learn more about this beautiful feast day be sure to read 7 Facts about St. Faustina and Divine Mercy.  And from my blog's archives you can read 7 Ways to Celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday with Children (and Adults too!).

We had a busy weekend so we actually celebrated Divine Mercy Sunday on the Friday before Divine Mercy Sunday before our family went in different directions.  We prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet as a family while we ate our sweet treats. On Sunday, my husband did take some of our children (I was out of town at one child's soccer tournament) to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and say prayers in front of the image.  The photo above was taken at my parish. 

As in year's past I made homemade whipped cream (an easy and delicious recipe) with strawberry and blueberry "rays".  We also had Divine Mercy "Sundaes".

Here's our sundaes with red and blue sprinkles and I read part from The Divine Mercy Image Explained.  

This year we forgot to add a heart strawberry to the sundae like we did in previous years

And this is the original painting of Divine Mercy! 

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Sunday April 23, 2017 was also the feast day of Saint George so we celebrated both feast days as a family on the previous Friday.   You can read my Saint George post for more details!
