Did you know that the Divine Mercy devotion was once banned by Rome?
In 1959, the Holy Office in Rome (what is now the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) issued a notification forbidding the circulation of “images and writings that promote devotion to Divine Mercy in the forms proposed by Sister Faustina.”
At this time, the Holy See was worried that the Divine Mercy devotion was too generous because the promises given by Christ to Sister Faustina (regarding full remission of temporal and eternal punishment) seemed to rival the graces of the seven sacraments and exceed the greatest papal indulgences! So the message and even the image of Divine Mercy (with the blood and water flowing out) were condemned…but then came Saint John Paul II!
Do you want to learn more about how Saint John Paul II reversed the previous ruling and then spread the message of Divine Mercy over the entire world?
Tonight, I’m hosting a live Catholic Webinar Event explaining the history of this controversy and then showing how Saint John Paul II rectified and promoted Saint Faustina’s message and image of Divine Mercy! It’s an exciting story and it will change your life! You and your Catholic friends will not want to miss this live event. This is like going to a Catholic conference – but it’s free and online!
