The author, Br. Michael Gaitley, MIC, has a remarkable gift for inspiring little souls to trust in Jesus, The Divine Mercy. As Danielle Bean, editorial director of Faith & Family magazine, puts it, The voice of Christ in these pages is one that even this hopelessly distracted wife and mother of eight could hear and respond to. Includes practical helps an in appendices.
