I remember the first time I was introduced to Divine Mercy. I went to what I thought was the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday. It wasn’t even at my home parish.
Instead of “just” the stations, them music ministry led us in singing the Divine Mercy chaplet before the stations began.
Now I had SEEN the image of the Divine Mercy, and had heard of it, but never thought much of it… honestly maybe I had felt a little overwhelmed because I was already feeling like I didn’t know enough about all the other devotions.
But the novena was touching. I stirred something in me.
I even created a playlist so I could listen to the Divine Mercy chaplet being sung while I mowed the lawn.
I went and found Divine Mercy Explained. – a very short, clear explanation of Divine Mercy, it’s meaning, the prayers, novena and chaplet.
If you’ve never dug into the meaning behind Divine Mercy, perhaps this is the year that you do. The Novena begins on Good Friday and I invite you to pray it with me this year.
I hope it helps your heart feel the love of Christ the way it did for me.
