I, as an Eastern Rite Catholic, regardless of the day it occurs, celebrate the Divine Mercy Day on the Sunday after (Latin Rite) Easter, simply because Saint Faustina is a Latin Rite Catholic and Jesus was specific to her Easter observance day, when he gave her message to spread to mankind. I do however feel great concern on the variation, or relativism of the Feast Day due to the Eastern and Western Rite Catholics (Easter-observance). I truly believe the particularity of Divine Mercy Day (day of Reconciliation and fount of Mercy) has its distinct time that Jesus wanted it to be solemnly observed regardless of mankind's philosophical differences and variations. We should seriously consider and reconcile to a single feast Day that every Faithful can confess and obtain the inconceivable Gift of Mercy uniformly and undoubtedly of its time limitation.

Please refresh my memory of the importance of 3:00 p.m. for St. Faustina other than that is the hour Christ died?
