Even as Sister Faustina and Pope John Paul II reminded us of Divine Mercy, it was there long before either of them. THAT is the great thing. I was reminded of this as I read this Evening Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours, written long before a Divine Mercy Sunday was ever declared:
Once there was no mercy for you, but now you have found mercy.
