Our Celebration today of Divine Mercy Sunday is most often accompanied by a recital of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Here is what I consider the best version, from our friends at EWTN.
If there were no night, we would not appreciate the day, nor could we see the stars and the vastness of the heavens. We must partake of the bitter with the sweet. There is a divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless us. As you walk in Jesus’s divine wisdom that comes from God, you will surely begin to see a greater measure of victory and good success in your life.
Wasn’t able to make Divine Mercy Sunday at St. Mary’s but was able to do entire
Mass & chaplet with EWTN & it was beautiful!
Hope you are feeling better and will be able to join us in two weeks or our next Christ Life meeting.
Divine Mercy service at St. Mary’s was very moving. Also a gratifying number of folks stayed after Mass (many from Christlife). It would have been great for more to have stayed; not only DM Chaplet but also Benediction. I recommend that people also check out the DM Novena that the Church recommends to be prayed during the nine days preceding DM Sunday (beginning with Good Friday; different intention each day). The prayers seem to relate Jesus’ agony in the garden with our acceptance or rejection of His Mercy. The novena is available on EWTN.com.
