On the Feast of Divine Mercy, April 11th. Marek Jędraszewski, Archbishop of Krakow, will bless more Bells of Hope, this time for the islands of Samoa and Tonga, which will remind of the message of Mercy, provided to the world by Saint Faustina. The inhabitants of these two islands in Oceania are presently under terrible threat to their lives from the rising waters of the Pacific Ocean and also the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The bells cast in Poland and blessed at the Łagiewniki Shrine of Divine Mercy will be delivered to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Consumption in the capital city of Apia on Samoa, which is the home of the Divine Mercy Center in Oceania, the main coordinator of which is Archbishop Alapati Lui Mataeliga, and to the Basilica of St. Anthony of Padua in the capital city of Nuku’alofa on Tongo, where the dynamic movement of Divine Mercy has many members and apostles of Divine Mercy, headed by Cardinal Saone Patita Paini Mafi. In mid-August 2021, in Apia, Samoa, the V World Congress of Divine Mercy Apostles will be hosted. For more information, visit https://gf.me/u/y22t6r
The first Bells of Hope were dedicated last year for Brazil and the Phillipines. The bells for Oceania have been funded by the faithful from the Shrine of Divine Mercy in Melbourne, Australia.
