On the Divine Mercy

All over the Catholic blogworld you can find the novena to the Divine Mercy this week. This was the first time I have ever participated in it in person, as our church prayed the novena before Holy Thursday Mass and the Good Friday service as well as before the Easter Vigil. Amy and K have been posting the Novena daily.

Father J.C. Maximilian has a good explanation of what's behind the Divine Mercy prayers and the image, in case you are as new to it as I am. I appreciated the background information and the relation to Eucharistic Adoration.

Big Brother learned early in his school career that this prayer "has never been known to fail." He had a wise teacher.

I hope, during this Easter season, to pray this chaplet more often and to learn more about the devotion.
