Divine Mercy Sunday at the Fathers of Mercy

If anyone out there can make it out to south-central Kentucky on Divine Mercy Sunday, the Fathers of Mercy have something special going on at the Chapel of Divine Mercy. Mass is, as usual, at 10:00 a.m., but at 2:00 p.m. they will have special devotions including the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, a blessing of the Divine Mercy image, opportunity for confession (there are four confessionals and they plan to have a priest in each), and I know not what else.

As you can guess by their name and the name of the Chapel, the Fathers of Mercy have a special dedication to the message of God's tender mercy to us, his creatures and adopted children, and they spend most of their time preaching that message on their missions. We are fortunate enough to get not just homilies, but mission talks just about every Sunday (this can sometimes be a little much for the younger kids--the fathers never give a mere fifteen-minute homily on a Sunday!)

It ought to be a very grace-filled afternoon.
