Rest in Peace, Reverend Mother Mary Angelica, 1923-2016
Mother Angelica, foundress of the Eternal Word Television Network and now the largest religious media network in the world, passed away yesterday, Easter Sunday, at approximately 5:00 PM Central Time.
Sad for us.
But she gets to meet Jesus face to face.
Today is Day Four of the Divine Mercy Novena.
Jesus said to Saint Faustina
Today bring to Me the souls of those who do not believe in God, and those who do not yet know me. I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.
Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God* and those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages.
