Down at the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil today some of the participants were Catholics. We all had our Rosaries, so we prayed the Rosary and then the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I mentioned to the people there with me that it was significant that we were praying the devotion on St. Faustina’s Feast Day, in light of the abortion connection. Huh? they said. You know, I said, in the diary? I missed it myself until I read about it in Fr. Frank Pavone’s book, Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting It, several months ago.
Divine Mercy Sunday is the day after tomorrow, the first Sunday after Easter, the day that Christ promised that the fountain of His mercy would open in a special way for all who would trust in Him.
My Heart overflows with great mercy for souls, especially for poor sinners…[I]t is for them that the Blood and Water flowed from My Heart as from a fount overflowing with mercy. For them I dwell in the tabernacle as King of Mercy (Diary, 367).
