If you have the Catholic channel on TV, sometimes they do the divine chaplet, and it's beautifully sung!

That's a shame that there are none celebrated in Taiwan. Not all parishes do them here in Winnipeg, but when I checked, at least half a dozen did.

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

Do love to join Divine Mercy Sunday in one of these places! Taiwan does not have them, so sad.

Thank you, Bellacuddles!

We used to have Divine Mercy services at our parish for several years but this year it was held in conjunction with a neighboring parish, Saint Anselm, in Northeast Philadelphia.

Prayers work...on God's timing. My son is back at church...and I've been praying for this for years! We were visiting him from MI...to Austin, and he had been at St. John Newmann church the week prior. THe Easter celebration was glorious, and he told us he was going to start going back to mass that day! Prayers do get answered...in His time! Praying for all members on this team. Our God works for us!

Thank you, Joceklyn!

I had forgotten that your husband professes no faith at this time.

I am offering my tonight's rosary to your children, CJ and MRSJARI. Prayer always works, in God's time... the same as I have always prayed for my husband who does not believe in God.
I know he believes... there's just something that he may not have discovered yet.

I will definitely pray for your daughter. Please pray for mine as well. She no longer practises the Faith. She doesn't go to Mass, does not believe that Christ was the son of God, and doesn't believe what we had taught her growing up. I think she still believes in God, though, so I am grateful for that.

Did I ever tell you the story of a man in a neighbouring parish? He left the Church as a young man. His mother prayed for him daily for 9 years. Not only did he return to the Church, but he became a priest! His name was Martin, and he died last week, his mother at his side. Perhaps we can ask him for his intercession regarding our daughters!

Father Martin, pray for us and for our daughters who have strayed from the Church. As you brought so many people back to the Faith during your time on earth, we trust that your prayers now in heaven are powerful, and will facilitate many miracles of conversion!

Amen.

You look so young, CJ!

My son and I also went to the Divine Mercy service. The chaplet was sung/chanted, and the congregation was unsure when to be quiet and when to sing/chant! The whole service, though, with Adoration and more, was really beautiful.

Please pray for my eldest daughter - back many years ago, she received First Holy Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday. She no longer believes in God. She is married an pregnant with our first grandchild, due in August. Thank you.

Yes, the week after Easter Sunday being designated as Divine Mercy Sunday was only instigated in the last 10 years or so. Yikes! It has been 15 years; I just looked it up. It seems a lot less than that, but I guess the late, Great Saint Pope John Paul the II instituted it, so it had to be a while ago.

My daughter and I went to the service at a neighbouring parish. Unfortunately, the Divine Mercy Chaplet was chanted, not spoken, and the chanting was not very good. Very off-key. We recited it under our breath with each other instead of singing it with the others. I hope we didn't disturb anyone else!

Next year, we will try another parish to see what they do. It's nice to see the differences in different celebrations around the city.

I'm back to the Church after a long break, but I remember this as being called Low Sunday. I looked it up, and Divine Mercy Sunday is fairly new.

I just got home from a wonderful Divine Mercy prayer service!! I walked to and from...about 40 minutes round trip...so I got my spiritual health as well as physical health needs taken care of! Our service was very moving with the rosary and the Divine Chaplet rosary....loved it!!

Barbara .....that's what my friends call me! Never cared for the name Barb.

Make it a blessed and healthy day! IT IS YOUR CHOICE!
