WYD2016 Blog11 - A Pilgrim's Guide to Divine Mercy Shrine

Last edited 8th December 2015

Located in the District of Lagiewniki. The Divine Mercy Sanctuary is the resting place of Saint Faustina Kowalska. It is here that pilgrims can see the miraculous image of Jesus Christ with rays of red and white coming out of his Sacred heart. This Divine Mercy image was that which Sister Faustina saw in her visions and which Jesus asked her to have painted so that it could be venerated by the whole world. He also taught her how to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

In a world marked by suffering and fierce persecution – especially of Christians – now “is the time for mercy,” Pope Francis said, speaking at the vigil for the Feast of Divine Mercy. Reflecting on the ongoing persecution faced by Christians, the Pope said, “our prayer is all the more intense and becomes a cry for help to the Father, who is rich in mercy, that he may sustain the faith of our many brothers and sisters who are in pain.”

God’s Perfect Mercy – A Meditation for Divine Mercy Sunday

Last edited 8th December 2015

We live in times in which mercy, like so many other things, has become a detached concept in people’s minds, separated from the things that really help us to understand it. For indeed, mercy makes sense and is necessary because we are sinners in desperate shape. Yet many today think it unkind and unmerciful to speak of sin as sin. Many think that mercy is a declaration that God doesn’t really care about sin, or that sin is not a relevant concept.

Haters Gonna Hate: What to Do When a Student Doesn’t Love You.

Last edited 1st February 2015

Have you ever worked with a student who just couldn’t stand you? I have. You know the deal – the rolling eyes, snarky comments, being completely ignored, blatant efforts to be disruptive, and the heaps of sarcasm. Having a hater is totally awesome. Ok, not true. No one likes to be hated, and it’s not awesome at all. We want all of our students to love us, but the reality is, they don’t. Once in a blue moon, a hater dwells amoung them.

Then, by inspiring them to share their faith with others. Historically, perhaps what's most striking about the Year of Faith, is that it was ultimately carried out by two Popes.
