 Our Description

We are living in an extraordinary time: A Time of Mercy.

But what is mercy? What does it mean to be living in a Time of Mercy? How can we receive God’s Mercy? And how should we respond?

In Doors of Mercy, authors Fr. Jeffrey Kirby and Brian Kennelly answer these important questions. They act as your tour guides on a whirlwind tour of salvation history, from Adam and Eve to the coming of the Savior, and into the present day with the beautiful story of St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy message and devotion.

You’ll discover the intricate stitching of a divine rescue plan that would not be stopped by anything. Across countless generations the Lord’s mercy acted as the lifeblood of this rescue plan, so that neither our own weakness, nor the devil himself, could thwart it. He would deliver us a Savior and a King of Mercy no matter what it took, one who would bring His Kingdom to the ends of the earth, and who would smash the very gates of hell.

You’ll discover:

How the rebellion of Adam and Eve in the Garden affects our relationships with each other, with God, and with the world around us
Why God chose a rainbow as the sign of the covenant with Noah
The purpose behind Abram’s name being changed to Abraham
How the plagues in the time of Moses were not random but had symbolic meaning
How David’s Kingdom serves as a template, or blueprint, for the Church
The hidden meaning behind some of Jesus’s well known parables and why the Eucharist is the sign of the new and eternal covenant
How the Church and her saints have spread mercy throughout the centuries, with short biographies of Sts. Vincent, Camillus, Margaret Mary, Maria Goretti and more
The history behind St. Faustina’s visions of Jesus and the spreading of the Divine Mercy message and devotion
How you can continue Christ’s mission of mercy in your own life…

Profile
Beautiful, pious farm girl, one of six children of Luigi Goretti and Assunta Carlini. In 1896 the family moved to Ferriere di Conca. Soon after, Maria's father died of malaria, and the family was forced to move onto the Serenelli farm to survive.

In 1902 at age twelve, Maria was attacked by 19-year-old farm-hand Alessandro Serenelli. He tried to rape the girl who fought, yelled that it was a sin, and that he would go to hell. He tried to choke her into submission, then stabbed her fourteen times. She survived in hospital for two days, forgave her attacker, asked God's forgiveness of him, and died holding a crucifix and medal of Our Lady. Counted as a martyr.

While in prison for his crime, Allessandro had a vision of Maria. He saw a garden where a young girl, dressed in white, gathered lilies. She smiled, came near him, and encouraged him to accept an armful of the lilies. As he took them, each lily transformed into a still white flame. Maria then disappeared. This vision of Maria led to Alessandro's conversion, and he later testified at her cause for beatification.
Born
16 October 1890 at Corinaldo, Ancona, Italy
