Viewing an episode of Women of Grace on EWTN recently, I was made aware of someone and something I did not know before with regard to the Divine Mercy observances.

The host, Johnette Benkovic was speaking with her guest, Vinny Flynn, author of the book, the 7 Secrets of Divine Mercy. It was a very interesting and informative discussion, but when I heard Johnette mention the name, Fr Michael Sopocko and spoke about his role in the establishing of the devotion, my focus shifted and so I researched to find out more about this individual.

He was a priest and confessor and spiritual director of Sr Faustina, the nun to whom our Saviour Jesus Christ entrusted the assignment of spreading the devotion to His Divine Mercy.
