The B.C. Catholic has a story by Ramon Gonzalez of the Western Catholic Reporter about a retreat focusing on the Divine Mercy:
The Divine Mercy is a Catholic devotion to the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart toward those who need it.

St. Mary Faustina Kowalska, a Polish peasant, brought that devotion to the forefront when in her diary she reported a number of visions of Jesus and conversations with him.

Dr. Robert Stackpole, a theologian at St. Therese Institute of Faith and Mission in Bruno, Sask., and director of the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy, led a mission of Mercy Oct. 5-7 at St. Theresa Parish focusing on St. Faustina.
