The Sunday after Easter is Divine Mercy Sunday. Pope John Paul II instituted this feast in 2000 based on the private revelations received in the 1930s by a humble Polish nun, St. Faustina Kowalska. In her diary, Faustina recorded Jesus telling her, “I desire that the whole world know My infinite mercy.” Jesus also gave her the chaplet of Divine Mercy, promising, “Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death.” You can pray the chaplet on ordinary rosary beads.

Sometimes I like to sit and daydream about God. I might be under a tree at a park, watching the shadows shift through the leaves, or in my office, listening to rain splatter against my windows, or even behind the wheel of my car in a parking lot, with people loading their groceries in cars beside mine.

There comes a moment when something clicks. At a book club or a Bible study. In a carpool circle or a coffee shop. A connection is made, and a gathering turns into a group, taking on a life of its own.
