That's not one of the familiar "Divine Mercy" images. It's the Merciful Jesus Carving that generally stands in a corner of St. Paul's church sanctuary here in Sauk Centre, Minnesota.
One of the guest posts in this blog was written by the man who sculpted the statue. (March 7, 2009) He wrote another homily, "The Divine Mercy: A Homily, Mercy Sunday 2002" (April 7, 2002), that's on the Brendan's Island Website.
Divine Mercy Sunday: April 11, 2010I've written about Divine Mercy Sunday before. One thing that's special this year is a novena for Pope Benedict XVI that starts the day after tomorrow: Divine Mercy Sunday, April 11, 2010. I've written about that before, too. ("Novena for Pope Benedict XVI, April 11-19" (April 5, 2010))
A novena is a set of prayers said over a nine-day period. Wait: I've said that before, too.
