True -- but this assumes that one has received both of these Sacraments according to the requirements for the Grace of these Sacraments to be received: 1) Confession - one must have a firm purpose of amendment of life to stop the sin and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Otherwise, the Grace of Confession is blocked due to the failure in one's interior disposition required for sin to be forgiven & absolved in the Sacrament of Confession/Penance.
2) Holy Communion - one must be free from mortal sin, i.e., having confessed all such sins according to the conditions above. If a soul receives Holy Communion in a state of unconfessed and unabsolved mortal sin, then the sin of sacrilege is committed - and the Graces offered by Our Lord in this most holy Sacrament are blocked due the failure to have the correct interior dispositions and state of soul needed.

Only IF these two Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion are properly received, according to Catholic teaching and tradition, can Our Lord confer the Promises revealed to St. Faustina regarding the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy - i.e., the Grace of a Second Baptism.

It is largely because of the failure to communicate the entire truth about what is required for the reception of the Graces of these two great Sacraments that many traditional Catholics have rejected the profound revelations St. Faustina received from Our Lord about His Divine Mercy and Divine Mercy Sunday. Without the full Truth, not only about what is required for the reception of Confession and the Holy Eucharist, but also about the Moral Law - both according to the Natural Law and the moral precepts of the Divine Law - and our need to correspond to both, the whole idea of Divine Mercy deteriorates into a "pseudo-mercy," which causes people to remain stuck in their sin - due to a lack of repentance and the absence of a firm purpose to sin no more and avoid the near occasions of sin. This is the slippery and sure path to hell -- and is totally opposed to all that Our Lord revealed to St. Faustina about His Mercy.
