Mercy Meditations

'Everything Kind of Just Disappeared Around Me'

By Marc Massery

On St. Patrick’s Day Sunday, March 17, 2013, the sky gleamed the most beautiful shade of blue over South Bend, Indiana. Little did Diana McKeown know that on that day, her world would quite actually come crashing down around her. 

Thankfully, her fervent devotion to Divine Mercy and trust in Jesus delivered her safely through one of the more bizarre disasters in recent United States history. 


The following is an excerpt from the Marian Press book 52 Weeks with St. Faustina by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle:

“Help me, O Lord, that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbors and take upon myself the more difficult and toilsome tasks.” 

Diary, 163

It's November. You Are Called to a Work of Mercy.

There are souls in need, and you can help.

November is the month of remembrance for Holy Souls in Purgatory. The basis for this special month of remembrance is that many souls, on departing from the body, are not perfectly cleansed from venial sins, or have not fully atoned for past wrongdoing. To quote the Catholic Encyclopedia, they "are debarred from the Beatific Vision," that is, from Heaven, until their souls become purified in Purgatory.
