We’re so excited to invite you to the Divine Mercy for Moms Book Club. It starts next week with my author interview.

Each week, we’ll read and discuss one chapter of Divine Mercy for Moms: Sharing the Lessons of Saint Faustina, by Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet.

Divine Mercy for Moms featured

divine mercy for moms book coverOriginating in the early twentieth century, the Divine Mercy devotion of St. Faustina Kowalska is one of the most celebrated of all Catholic devotions. Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet break open the history, practices, and prayers associated with the devotion, guiding busy moms to receive God’s message of Divine Mercy and pass it on to others through their words, deeds, and prayers.

Faehnle and Jaminet draw upon their experiences to introduce you to St. Faustina and her five essential elements of the Divine Mercy message:

  • The image of the Merciful Jesus
  • The Feast of Divine Mercy
  • The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
  • The House of Mercy
  • Spreading the honor of Divine Mercy

With heartwarming stories and practical advice, this book reveals that mercy is not just a gift to be received in the confessional but a spiritual resource that strengthens those who extend themselves in word, deed, and prayer. Designed for personal or group study, Divine Mercy for Moms celebrates the infinite mercy of God and the role of Mary, the Mother of Mercy, in the lives of all believers.

Here’s how the Divine Mercy for Moms Book Club will work:

We’ll post a reflection each week on Saturdays, beginning with an author interview on September 10, 2016. We have a team of writers who will be reflecting on each chapter and posting discussion questions. You’re welcome to read along with us.
