A Holy Week episode that talks about the extraordinary graces that come to us through Jesus, the Divine Mercy. I’m specifically going to focus on trusting Jesus for his mercy, the link between the prayers of Mary’s fiat and the simple prayer, “Jesus, I trust in You”. I’ll also share the encouraging prayer titled “Eternal God of Endless Mercy.” (Check out all the resources below on this much-needed topic in our lives and in today’s world.)
Plus listen to an uplifting interview with author Melanie Rigney on the subject of going through menopause with a faith perspective. We discuss her book release from last year, Menopause Moments: A Journal for Nourishing Your Mind, Body and Spirit in Midlife.
