Today is the Feast of St. Faustina, to whom Jesus revealed the wonders of divine mercy.
Many of you pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Did you know that this prayer was given to St. Faustina especially because of the sin of abortion? God revealed to her that because of this evil, the world needs His mercy more than ever. He even permitted St. Faustina to suffer special pains, representing the pain of abortion. In 2003, Pope John Paul II, who had a deep personal devotion to the Divine Mercy, issued a special papal blessing to all who pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for an end to abortion, for mothers who abort, and for the conversion of abortionists.
