Susan Skinner’s talk on Divine Mercy



“Pay attention to what the Priest does.  When he processes into the church, Christ is going to pray in the Garden of Olives, and He is sweating bloody sweat.  When the Priest opens the celebration of the Holy Mass, the Lord Jesus is praying. Now the Priest kisses the altar: that’s when Judas kisses the Lord and delivers Him into the hands of the Jews.  The Priest approaches the side of the altar – they are leading Christ to Annas. When he intones the Kyrie eleison – they are slapping His Him and spitting in His face; they lead Him to Caiaphas, and next to Pontius Pilate.  When the Priest washes his hands, Pilate is washing his hands. When the Priest uncovers the chalice on the altar, Pilate is having Jesus disrobed; when the Priest stands still, they are flogging Him. The Priest covers the chalice, and they are placing the crown of thorns on His head.  When he raises the Host – Christ is being raised on the cross. When the Priest breaks the Host and drops it in the chalice – Jesus dies.” a young Faustina to her little sister Natalia (from the book: Faustina, the Mystic and her message by Ewa K. Czaczkowska)

Today at my parish thanks to the Nashville Padre Pio Prayer Group, we had a display of first class relics.  We had Saint Faustina, Saint Padre Pio, Saint Anthony, Saint Michael (rocks from Cave of Saint Michael), and Blessed Seelos.  It was a beautiful day of prayer.  I gave a talk on Divine Mercy.

You can listen to my talk here.

Here are pictures of the day;

    Christ is Risen! Thank you for this post. During these dark times of Revelation 12, the Message of Divine Mercy needs to be shouted from the rooftops. And, that is an understatement. Both you and I, as well as many others know how critical this is.

    I also like the parade of relics, bringing the presence of so many saints to your talk.
