Sharing My Faith

I'd like to share a religious tradition with you. For Catholics, Good Friday marks the first day of the Divine Mercy Novena which concludes with the celebration of Mass next Sunday. This chaplet comes from the visions and diary of St. Faustina, a Polish nun. It is really beautiful. Praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet is an opportunity to meditate on God's mercy and stretch the forgiveness muscles. (What I mean is that in praying this chaplet God gives us the grace to grow more merciful towards other people.) Click here to learn about the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Fascinating! St. Faustina's chaplet seems almost downright Protestant. Not a single mention of Mary, although the site is sponsored by the Marians.

I don't mean this in a critical way at all. I am awed!

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
