A 'Course' of Action

Looking for a way to go right to the heart of the Catholic faith during Lent?

Why not get started on a new online/DVD course titled Divine Mercy Essentials, which covers every major theological, pastoral, and liturgical aspect of the Divine Mercy message and devotion. The John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy launched the online course last fall, giving participants the option of either simply purchasing the presentations or taking the course for certification and possibly academic credit.

From Purgatory to Heaven

For St. Faustina's spiritual director, Bl. Fr. Michael Sopocko, the goal of the devout life on earth is the attainment of heaven at our journey's end. He therefore wrote at length about the afterlife, and what souls can expect if they continue in a state of grace and sanctification until death.

Wanted: Well-Trained Disciples

If you're reading this website then you know that the Divine Mercy message and devotion continue to spread throughout the Church and the world, nourishing us with the healing waters of God's compassionate love. All this is happening in fulfillment of Christ's charge to St. Faustina: "My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. ... I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon souls who approach the fount of My mercy" (Diary of St. Faustina, 699).

An Institute's Mercy Mission Expands

It is commonly accepted that the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception are the western hemisphere's leading experts in the Divine Mercy message, devotion, and spirituality. The Marians have engaged in nearly 70 years of Divine Mercy mission work. They administer the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass., and the Association of Marian Helpers, also based in Stockbridge. They've sent millions of Divine Mercy pamphlets, prayercards, and books around the world.
