Mother of Mercy Messengers
Tell All Souls About My Mercy
Dave and Joan Maroney have seen hundreds of parishes response to this program yield a return to
the sacraments and a deeper appreciation of the Eucharist.
Sacred images, subtle lighting, and stirring music accentuate heartfelt renderings of passages from the Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska. The combination of these sights and sounds leads audience members to a moving experience like no other.
Participants will gain a better understanding of God's love and mercy for them. Then they will appreciate the need to reflect His love and mercy toward others.
This deeply spiritual and moving program has been seen live by more than 70,000 people in more than 500 parishes from coast to coast.

The Dramatic Portion
(approx. 70 min.)
Most of this portion is taken from a selection of passages from the Diary of St. Marian Faustina called "Conversations with the Merciful God" (see Diary 1485).
Excerpts from the conversations Jesus has with the sinful soul, the despairing soul, and the suffering soul are interwoven with inspiring reflections to help attendees to internalize the message and apply it practically. All can relate to the struggles each of these souls face. The concluding meditation is the Way of the Cross as seen through the eyes of the Blessed Mother as our shining example of accepting God's will in our lives, even in the most tragic situations. In this meditation we are reminded to persevere in love and that by meditating on Christ's passion we can rise above all things.
While the Dramatic Portion makes for a moving program in itself, MOMM wholeheartedly encourages you to then make available the Sacrament of Penance. MOMM has seen firsthand that, after their presentations, souls are drawn to the Lord in this sacrament. Many priests have testified that they have been impressed with not only at the number of penitents, but in the quality of the confessions and in the number who come to receive reconciliation after many years.
The Sacramental Portion
(approx. 45 min.)
A time for Eucharistic Adoration and the Sacrament of Reconciliation is recommended whenever possible and in cooperation with the local pastor. There is a brief transition while the altar is prepared for exposition.
During adoration short periods of quiet reflection are interspersed with group recitation of selected prayers from the Diary. MOMM leads participants through the prayers in the booklet "The Divine Mercy Adoration Companion," provided by MOMM for each participant to keep. The booklet contains all of the prayers used for traditional exposition and benediction such as the "O Salutaris" and "The Divine Praises."
The contemplative nature of the dramatic portion opens the heart and allows time for the soul to reflect, and during adoration Our Lord speaks directly from the Eucharist to the heart providing a powerful experience for the attendee.
