It’s Good Friday, and today my wife and I prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3:00 PM. It’s the first time I’ve prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet, so I thought I’d take some time to post an article on it, for some background, along with a reprint of the prayer itself to share with you. The background information on this comes from EWTN and The Divine Mercy website.
Devotion to Michael the Archangel is one of the oldest devotions of the Church; indeed, his roles in God’s divine plan date back before the Incarnation. It was St. Michael who led God’s army against Lucifer and the other rebellious fallen angels, St. Michael who guards the Catholic Church and her pope, and St. Michael who, at God’s commands will reprise his role against the Antichrist in the End Times.
I have a personal favor to ask you. I’m feeling a little blue today about the recent loss of my dad. It was last December 16th, 2013, but some days it still seems like yesterday to me. So, would you please say a prayer for the soul of my dad? His name is Garey Coonen. He really was (and is) an amazing person!
