I love the Divine Mercy Devotion! As a family we have enjoyed praying the meaningful novena that started on Good Friday. I learned about St. Maria Faustina, a long with my children, when we began homeschooling 6 years ago. We have come to love this devotion together, trying to live the merciful way. My oldest son (age 16) has a particular fondness of this devotion so he insisted on baking our dessert in honor of the Image of Divine Mercy that Jesus asked St. Faustina to have made.
We used confetti cake with confetti icing because they both reflected the Divine Mercy colors and then we decorated the best we could to reflect Jesus in his Divine Mercy Image! It's nothing professional but made with love and devotion.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is also a favorite of my oldest son. We look forward to Divine Mercy Sunday this weekend.
We shall pray unceasingly "Jesus I Trust In You!" This is St. Faustina's exclamation of trust. It is our "yes", our fiat, with Mary, Mother of Mercy. This is to express our faith, hope, and love of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Pope John Paul II, Mother of the Redeemer , n.14).Pin It
