I came across some quotes from Blessed John Paul II on Divine Mercy, compiled by my priest friends of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, and wanted to share them with you all!
[As a brief aside, here's a funny story about the time I first met the priests and brothers of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. I had just recently started graduate studies at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and was attending my first Vocations Fair at the school. I had a friend who had recently professed first vows with the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal, and she was attending the fair. I was very excited to see her for the first time in her habit and to speak with her, but since she was already talking with someone else when I first saw her, I decided to buy some time by looking at the other tables nearby. The Marians of the Immaculate Concpetion table was close, and being drawn to their devotion to the Divine Mercy, I found myself looking at their display while waiting for my friend. One of the brothers saw me looking at the display and said kindly, "Hello! We're the Marians." I said, "Hello!" He continued, "of the Immaculate Conception." "Yes, wonderful!" I responded. Then, after a brief moment of slightly uncomfortable silence, he said, "for men!" I explained that I was just admiring their display board while waiting for my friend, and that he need not worry about my having aspirations of joining his order, and we both shared a hearty laugh!]
Okay, here are the quotes. Enjoy!
