|Divine Mercy by James B. Janknegt (Austin, TX)|
Today marks the beginning of the Divine Mercy Novena. Many parishes organize praying of the novena after the Good Friday service. The Novena consists of a prayer for a particular group of people followed by praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet. For example, today we pray for all mankind, especially sinners in need of mercy. One easy way to gather all the resources you need, including praying the Divine Mercy Novena, is to download the free Divine Mercy App. +Stacey Gonzalez and I have used the app in the past to lead us in the chaplet. Yes, it has an audio component!
