Feast of the Divine Mercy
We passed several stacks of logs and a sign that read “Why are these logs here?” The sign said not to climb on them or disturb them as they were left for air-drying so that they can be repurposed elsewhere. Just as well they said; I was tempted to clamber over them.

As I pray this prayer of the Divine Mercy, I remember particularly one from our Marriage Encounter community: he was only 46 and suffered a massive heart-attack, suddenly leaving his wife and 2 school-aged children. There is a hole in my heart.
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!Opening prayer of the Divine Mercy Chaplet
