Tragic Car Accident Reveals God's Mercy

We went to the Church to get the relic, gassed up our car like racers do at a pit stop, and hopped on the interstate toward Jackson to pray the Chaplet by Nick's bedside.

"We were illegal in this country, and my husband was working under a different name.... But one day, after we learned about Divine Mercy, he told me: 'I feel like I need to tell my boss the truth.' "
