Terror of Demons: an Explanation

In last month's newsletter, we published a prayer that included the title of St. Joseph as "Terror of Demons." I wish to take a moment to explain that title.

Firstly, what is terror? I prefer to define terror as the "opposite of hope," a condition that stems from lack of trust that God loves you and wills what's best for you.

Encuentro Latino 2019

On Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, thousands of men, women, and children of Latino heritage descended upon the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy for the annual Encuentro Latino (Latin Encounter) to celebrate God's mercy.

Jesus said to St. Faustina in a series of revelations in the 1930s, "I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My merciful Heart" (Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, 1588).
