Divine Mercy Novena

We invite you to join in praying the Divine Mercy Novena with us, which begins today.
Divine Mercy Sunday, the Second Sunday after Easter, held no particular meaning for us until last year, when we found out we were expecting Lily that day. We feel it was no coincidence. We would have five children, ages 6 and under- yes, “Jesus, I trust in you!”
As we were discussing names, we had settled on Lillian, but I (Laura) wasn’t sure about the middle name we had picked. I started thinking about the Divine Mercy and really felt like we needed to name Lily after St. Faustina, the apostle of Divine Mercy.

This year is especially significant because Pope John Paul II, who canonized St. Faustina and who declared Divine Mercy Sunday, will be beatified on this day.
