EWTN To Air Special Divine Mercy Preview/Mass
It Will Change The Way You View Divine Mercy
Irondale, AL – This Sunday on EWTN: Find out what you need to know about a comprehensive new program that will change the way you view Divine Mercy!
During the “Divine Mercy Preview Show,” a one-hour special which airs live from the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass., the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, the order entrusted with the Divine Mercy message, will launch their new program, “Hearts Afire.” The program begins at 12 p.m. ET, Sunday, April 15, with an encore at 12 a.m. ET, Monday, April 16. Both airings will be followed by the Mass and Celebration of Divine Mercy.
You’ll hear from a number of outstanding guests including Ralph Martin, Associate Professor of Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and Director of Graduate Theology Programs in the New Evangelization, who will discuss what Pope Benedict’s recently announced “New Evangelization Synod” means for the universal Church. Other topics include evangelization in the parish and evangelization in the family.
But the heart of the program -- which comes on the 10thanniversary of the late Pope John Paul II’s entrustment of the world to Divine Mercy -- is the introduction of the Marian’s new parish-based program, “Hearts Afire!” The program aims to set you afire with love for Jesus through Mary -- which has been described as “the surest, easiest, shortest, and the most perfect means” of becoming a saint.
So gather your friends for what could be the most fruitful Sunday of your life!
