CATHOLICCORGI - thank you for sharing that with us!

TRNITYROYAL - that was uplifting, wasn't it?

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I cannot tell everyone how much this Team means to me!
I completed the DM Novena, fulfilled all the requirements for the Indulgence. I heard the Indulgence for DM Sunday referred to as a "Second Baptism" because it totally cleanses us as if we were rebaptized. What a gift!
My faith is growing steadily(and being tested steadily, too!) and I am learning so much about being Catholic from everyone here. The weight loss and fitness I am gaining from SP is nothing compared to the riches I am gathering from my being a part of CC!
Alleluia! He IS risen indeed!

Thank you so much, I signed up for the site as well. I love the Divine Mercy Novena so far. I pray a Divine Mercy chaplet daily anyway, and this added another dimension for me. With other novenas I definitely need reminders, so thanks again for this link!

I'm saying my Chaplet first thing each morning... My phone goes off each day at 3pm anyway, but I find my day is greatly blessed by beginning it with seeking God's Mercy.
Let's not forget to go to Reconcilliation on Saturday!
Our DM service will be at 12:15pm Sunday...

I managed to find a little quiet time each day this weekend, and was able to say the prayer and chaplet each day. My eldest daughter and her boyfriend came over to visit and look after the Monster Tots, so I took the opportunity where I found it.

Well, I remembered to say the chaplet on Friday and Saturday, but I could not find the other prayers that go with the Novena until Sunday (I was not on the computer at all those two days). I asked my guardian angel to say the prayers for me instead!

Anyway,

Day 01 - done (with retroactive prayers for day one when I printed out the sheet)
Day 02 - done (with retroactive prayers for day two)
Day 03 - done

Thanks for posting this.

I keep a checklist on my night table so that I don't forget my novenas -- but still I sometimes do. What a great idea, an e-mail reminder.

I will sign up for the Divine Mercy Novena also.

What a good idea. Thank you for letting us know!

(and I always forget to start it on Good Friday; you're not alone)

Here's the link in a 'click-able' form:

I think I can count on one hand the number of Novenas that I have actually completed. I may be the only one that has a problem remembering, but just in case I'm not, I just want to share a website that helps me alot. www.praymorenovenas.com They send me daily reminders with every novena prayer in them. I sometimes even use my own Novena prayers out of a book I have instead of theirs, but the daily reminder really helps! It isn't just the Divine Mercy Novena either, we just finished a St. Joseph novena this month.
Here is the e-mail message they are asking people to pass along...

____________________________________
Divine Mercy Novena 2012

Starting on Good Friday, I am joining more than 10,000 Catholics to pray a Divine Mercy Novena!

Iím actually trying to help this online prayer community (PrayMoreNovenas.com) to get 20,000 people praying this novena for Godís Mercy. We all need Mercy, right?

You can sign up for handy email reminders to get the the novena prayers here: http://www.praymorenovenas.com/divine-merc
y-novena

After you sign up, maybe you can help spread the word as well. Godís Mercy is abundant and overflowing, letís share it!
