Divine Mercy In, Through and Beyond Prison Walls

                                                 
If you ever doubted the power of Divine Mercy, the story of Pornchai Moontri will erase all doubts. Fr. Gordon MacRae has posted how Divine Mercy in Bangkok, Thailand has traveled the globe and found its way into a New Hampshire prison. The details of the story are explained in great and amazing detail in Fr. Gordon's recent post titled Knock and the Door Will Open: Divine Mercy in Bangkok, Thailand.
Click the link above to visit These Stone Walls to read this wonderful story of faith and Divine Mercy. You may want to leave an encouraging thought, word or prayer for Pornchai afterward.
If you are unfamiliar with Pornchai's story from the beginning, Fr. Gordon's post has links to his earlier ones as well as posts written by Pornchai himself.

"Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever." ~Psalm 106

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
