Lawrence Hampton is kneeling, Rosary beads laced through his fingers, a bullet still lodged near his spine, and a list of prayer intentions running through his mind like teletype.

His Heart Beats for Divine Mercy

Charles Yezak Sr. did not begin to grasp the depth of God's Divine Mercy until his heart almost stopped beating.

Charles and his wife, Nellie, hail from Marlin, Texas. These cradle Catholics initially met as children when they made their First Holy Communion together. They reconnected in high school and are now approaching their 52nd year of marriage.

Nellie had always been a fervent Catholic. But Charles, for many years, stressed by the need to provide for his wife and three children, did not make prayer a priority.

An Icon Finds a Home

I received an interesting phone call recently from a dear friend of mine, author Susan Tassone, making me an offer I couldn't possibly refuse.

Susan wanted to know if the Marian Fathers here at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, would like to have a 28-inch-by-34-inch icon that she had commissioned for the cover of her book St. Faustina Prayer Book for the Holy Souls in Purgatory (Our Sunday Visitor, 2015).
