About the Book

Several years ago, I read the diary of St. Faustina about divine mercy and became devoted to the idea that God’s greatest attribute is his mercy and the promise he made to those who say the Divine Mercy Chaplet with or for a dying person that that person will die not only peacefully but also that Jesus will act as the giver of divine mercy, not as just judge. When I actually witnessed the peaceful death of a friend for whom I prayed the regular chaplet, I became a very strong believer and advocate of this prayer. But Jesus asks us to meditate on his sorrowful passion, not just to robotically say words. So I tried to put meditative thoughts to go with the prayer, not to be read daily but to be a fertile resource for helping us to meditate on Jesus’ sorrowful passion for both the chaplet and the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary.
