One Leaflet Led to All of This

By Bob French

The smallest seed of faith can grow into something big. That's definitely the case with Marian Helpers Frank and Marie Burke, who first heard about The Divine Mercy message in 1985 when they lived near Tucson, Arizona.

Frank just happened to see a Xeroxed leaflet about then-Sr. Faustina. One of the first things that caught his eye was the fact that she was born in 1905.

'Bless Me, Father, for I Have Sinned'

Like father, like son.

Thomas Fraser grew up in a strong Catholic family that said the Rosary daily. He attended Catholic grade school. His father was a Trappist monk, then a deacon before becoming a priest following the death of his wife, and he has a brother who's a priest.

Thomas also won the Morality Award in his senor year at Monroe Catholic Central High School in Monroe, Mich.

But his is a story of conversion, one that calls to mind Jesus' parable of the Prodigal Son (Lk 15:11-32).
