I hope you are able to take advantage of the Church's beautiful liturgies of the Triduum. They offer a perfect spiritual preparation to comprehend the reality of Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Overlapping this, is the beginning of the Divine Mercy Novena. You can find the prayers here. The Pray More Novenas web site will even email you the prayer each day.
I will be offering this novena in a special way for my mother. It was her favorite devotion. This is also an appropriate time to remember Pope John Paul II. He will be beatified on Divine Mercy Sunday.
