Divine Mercy for America

This post is long overdue.  A big mahalo to Lois for sharing!  The following is from their website:

To pray for our country as St. Faustina prayed for hers.
Prompted by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, in response to the New Evangelization, and in support of the Year of Faith, Divine Mercy for America is an initiative driven to radically increase awareness of and devotion to Jesus, The Divine Mercy as a sure means of providing great benefit to souls in our country and those throughout “the whole world.”
Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938) did her best to do as the Lord commanded, keeping a diary during the last four years of her life. Several times she recorded that Jesus requested prayers and entreaties for her country. She was shown how these efforts not only appeased God’s anger, but also resulted in blessings. Jesus also gifted us with several specific promises attached to devotion to His mercy that have been changing the lives of countless souls since they were first revealed to St. Faustina. It is through trust in this message and these promises that we, too, can grow in holiness and become empowered to save souls and our country.
My daughter, be diligent in writing down every sentence I tell you concerning My mercy, because this is meant for a great number of souls who will profit from it. (Jesus to St. Faustina, Diary, 1142)
