“I LOST EVERTHING, MY HOME, MY FRIENDS, MY SELF RESPECT… THE DIVINE MERCY MESSAGE CHANGED ME INTO A NEW PERSON”

“EVERYDAY MIRACLES OF THE DIVINE MERCY

LETTER FROM IRELAND

“I had never heard of the Divine Mercy, or St Faustina, until one day in despair I was passing the Pro Cathedral in Dublin and stopped and went in. On a table at the rear of the church there were some leaflets, ‘A message of hope for the addicted’ and ‘Novena and Chaplet to the Divine Mercy’ both of which I took with me and read in a seat, after reading them I put them in my pocket, said some prayers and left.

I HAD BEEN AWAY FROM THE CHURCH AND MASS FOR MANY YEARS

At that time my life was one of total despair, and although I did believe in God and was a catholic, I had been away from the church and Mass for many years.

TOTAL DESPAIR

My marriage had broken up, I let my business slide and now I was in deep financial difficulties. I was smoking and drinking very heavily and really felt depressed, except I didn’t know what to call it at the time. I knew I just wanted to lie down and die. Eventually I lost everything, my home, my friends, my self respect. I was homeless and desperate but I started to recite the Chaplet of Mercy and felt compelled to look for more information on the Divine Mercy and St Faustina and Fr Sopocko.

MY LIFE CHANGED COMPLETELY

I got the Diary [of St Faustina] and started to read it. As each day went by I felt more and more drawn into the Divine Mercy message, and I felt it asked me to intercede for others so I started reciting the Chaplet for souls who are crying out for mercy. In time, I began to trust in God’s Mercy and my life changed completely and I became a new person. The leaflets I picked up that day which led me to Divine Mercy really saved me from destruction, of this I have no doubt.

PART OF MY LIFE

Today Divine Mercy has become a part of my life and I try as much as I can to promote the Divine Mercy message and intercede for all who need His mercy.
