Living Mercy in November

I love November.

I mean, clearly I’m biased — I was born in November, on Thanksgiving Day, as a matter of fact. So I have many happy memories of birthday parties and family Thanksgivings, of turkey and stuffing and presents.

But I would argue that November is a blessed month for everyone. It’s the culmination of harvest time, after all, a time for grain to have been scythed and gathered in, for fruit to be canned, produce pickled, barns and cellars packed full, and for all to take stock of their preparations for winter.

Thumbs Up! 'Love and Mercy: Faustina' Receives Rave Reviews

By Marc Massery

In the early 20th century, Jesus appeared to a simple, hardly educated Polish nun named Sr. Faustina in order to reveal to the world a message about His Divine Mercy. On Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, that message made its way to more than 700 movie theaters across the United States. It’s called “Love and Mercy: Faustina,” and it was produced by Kondrat Media, a Polish film studio.

Pray, for Mercy's Sake

By Chris Sparks

One of my earliest memories is lying in my bed at night being led in bedtime prayers by my mom. She would show me how to make the Sign of the Cross, talk me through the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be, and then give me a kiss and say good night.
