Tuesday in the Octave of Easter, April 7, 2015

Psalm, Chapter 33, verse 18-19
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear him, upon those who count on his mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive through famine.

You cannot receive if you do not ask. Sunday is the Feast of Divine Mercy, let us ask for God’s mercy and count on it, to deliver our soul from death and keep us alive through this earthly famine for ourselves and others.  In fact one pious work we could do this week is a Novena to the Divine Mercy.  In the novena Christ asks us to pray each day for a certain groups of people.
Divine Mercy Hikes 
1.      All Sinners
2.      Priests and Religious
3.      Devout Souls
4.      Unbelievers
5.      Departed brethren
6.      Children
7.      Saints
8.      Those in purgatory
9.      And the Lukewarm

A good time to pray the novena is the hour of Christ’s death. “At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy…” Sister Faustina

Today if you have time would be a good day to read Saint John Paul II’s encyclical letter-Rich In Mercy.[1]

Today I published my book on Divine Mercy Hikes early; although I felt it needed more work, the spirit has moved me.  It is available on line through createspace and will be available via amazon in 3 to 5 days.
