Look into the Mirror of Mary

Saint Faustina called Mary her "mirror." A mirror tells the truth. A mirror reflects light to help us notice our flaws so that we can eliminate them. And a mirror shows us when we have improved, when we have taken one more step toward becoming as beautiful as we were made to be.

The Priest Who Believed St. Faustina

Who was that man on the other side of the confessional window?

Abortion and Divine Mercy

This act of mercy can save two lives: the physical life of the child and the spiritual life of the mother.

Listening for Lambs: Divine Mercy Unscripted

We don't always know what God will ask of us, and that's why we need to be open to disruptions to our own plans, trusting that He always has us where we need to be.

'It's Not Enough Just to Receive'

'Bless Me, Father, for I Have Sinned'

His is a story of conversion, one that calls to mind Jesus' parable of the Prodigal Son (Lk 15:11-32). As often happens, Thomas' trouble began when he went away to college and his faith became lukewarm.

Meet Momma, This Woman Who Radiates Christ

She stands at only five-feet tall. She's lived out on the street for years. And without even giving it a second thought, she extends mercy to others like no one I've ever known.

Spiritual Speed Bumps

It is Lent, a time when we are called to experience the richness of a deep encounter with God — a time when the Lord calls us to slow down. And what about all those bumps in the road, anyway?

'I Was in Exactly the Right Place'

A writer for our website, Marian Tascio, shares her experience as an attendee at the second annual Divine Mercy Conference on Feb. 3. The conference, entitled "Trusting in God's Mercy in Difficult Times," was sponsored by the Marians of the Immaculate Conception and the Center for Spiritual Development of the Archdiocese of New York.

You Can Come Home Again

"In my office, a large banner depicting Jesus as The Divine Mercy adorns the eastern wall. It's been hanging there since my first day on the job. I've looked upon it many times. Today, however, became the first time I had really seen it."
