Visitors to Catholic Cemeteries of Buffalo are encouraged to share their thoughts and remembrances of their mothers by signing banners which are mounted near entrances to six cemeteries, with the words, "Happy Mother's Day."
"Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year at all of our cemeteries," said Carmen Colao, diocesan director of Catholic Cemeteries. "We're always impressed with the thoughtful tributes that our families share about their mothers who have been laid to rest in our cemeteries."
Blessed Sacrament Parish in Tonawanda will host a screening of "The Original Image of Divine Mercy." The documentary tells the story of the actual painting of the Divine Mercy image as described by St. Faustina Kowalska from a vision of Jesus Christ. Director Daniel diSilva will be on hand to talk about the film and answer questions from the audience.
In the film, Archbishop Salvatore Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelism; Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary of Los Angeles; musician Harry Connick Jr., comedian Jim Gaffigan, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, archbishop of Vienna, Austria, and author George Weigel; among others, offer their thoughts on the often-reproduced image.
