Three days of prayer in honor of St Gemma begins Thursday


Triduum of prayers in honor of St Gemma's feastday begins Thursday

This year St Gemma's feastday, April 11th, providentially falls on Divine Mercy Sunday (2010). Since Gemma was herself called by God to be a victim soul, the Divine Mercy of God plays such an important part in her life. In fact, I previously wrote a article about the Divine Mercy of God in the life of St Gemma here.

Those interested in honoring the feastday of St Gemma and the mercy of God may want to consider making a Triduum of prayers in honor of St Gemma, located here.

In the final days of her illness, to the nursing Sisters of St. Camillus who had asked her which was her preferred prayer, Gemma answered with great feeling: -"My Jesus, mercy!"

~St Gemma, pray for us!

Thanks for the great article David.

I commented that there was a part in the article that really struck me--While Saint Faustina was meditating on the Passion of Jesus, our Lord said to her:
“My daughter, your compassion for Me refreshes Me. By meditating on My Passion, your soul acquires a distinct beauty.”

-It seems to me that this is really quite a lesson for us all!
