Devotion
our lord of divine mercy

From the diary of a young Polish nun, a special devotion began spreading throughout the world in the 1930s. The message is nothing new, but is a reminder of what the Church has always taught through scripture and tradition: that God is merciful and forgiving and that we, too, must show mercy and forgiveness. But in the Divine Mercy devotion, the message takes on a powerful new focus, calling people to a deeper understanding that God’s love is unlimited and available to everyone — especially the greatest sinners. >>more

Inspiration

The Hebrew Scriptures tell us that in olden times, people built a princely dwelling to honor the Lord. This was a place where they could worship the Lord, pray in thanksgiving for their deliverance, and show their love for Him. In our Catholic faith, we have a long tradition of people hungering to go to the mountain to experience God and His mercy. In the early days of the Hebrew Scriptures, Moses met God on the mountain. In the Gospel days, Jesus went up to the mountain to pray at night. After the Resurrection, Jesus met His disciples on a mountain that He had designated.

And today, the Mount of Divine Mercy will be a place where we can go to the mountain to experience God — where we can alleviate the tension created between God’s infinite promise of mercy and the world’s empty promises of fulfillment. >>more

 
Vision

The Divine Mercy message is a growing Catholic spirituality embraced by many throughout the Bay Area, the U.S. and across the world. With the state’s population approaching 40 million, it is appropriate that Californians have a dedicated place of pilgrimage; a place that will also appeal to and draw many tourists visiting the Bay Area.

In 2006, Divine Mercy Eucharistic Society signed a contract to purchase 100 acres of land. DMES christened the site The Mount of Divine Mercy. It is located on Sheridan Road in Alameda County, California, just off of Highway 680 at Sheridan Road in the rolling hills of the town of Sunol. The site is less than an hour from the major metropolitan areas of Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, and surrounding communities. It is close to the city but offers a chance to escape the urban environment in just minutes. Its summit has a view of the Bay Area that affords visitors a going up to the mountain to meet God experience. >>more

Stewardship

The unfolding story of the Mount of Divine Mercy is a mystery. It’s not easy for us to comprehend the inspiration of God, but the process has demonstrated God’s providence since its inception. Our faith has given us the courage to purchase the land in obedience to God’s inspiration. It’s now our hope that God will fulfill it according to His plan and His will. It is God who sows a holy desire in one’s heart and it is He who fulfills it. We totally trust in God’s providence, which is the essence of the Divine Mercy message — Jesus, I Trust in You.

We are receiving pro bono services from many professionals, including architects, engineers, surveyors, electricians, and others who hear, believe, and respond to God’s inspiration.  With God’s grace and mercy, their commitment has helped inspire us to proceed with this sacred project.
