Inspiring New Book about Divine Mercy
From the beloved author of the bestselling books 33 Days to Morning Glory and Consoling the Heart of Jesus comes a gripping account of the prophetic witness of St. John Paul II, and the profound connection between Marian Consecration and Divine Mercy.
The Second Greatest Story Ever Told is more than a historical re-telling of the Great Mercy Pope. This book serves as an inspiration for all who desire to bear witness to the mercy of God, focused on Christ and formed by Mary. It calls us to respond to the urgent need for mercy in our time of unprecedented evil. Now is the time of mercy. Now is the time to make St. John Paul II’s story your own.
The Second Greatest Story Ever Told
by Fr. Michael Gaitley, M.I.C.
Praise for The Second Greatest Story Ever Told
"God’s mercy is the gift that’s so great it makes us wonder: Can it really be true? There must be a catch. Fr. Gaitley tells the story of Divine Mercy and Marian consecration in this popular history of the great devotional currents of the century just past. This is not an academic exercise. This is a page-turner — and a life-turner — because so much turns on the question of God’s love for us, and the ways we love him in return. This book about Divine Mercy and Marian consecration in our time needs to become the backstory of my devotional life and yours."
Dr. Scott Hahn, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
“Anyone who reads this book will be truly informed and inspired as they see more clearly God working in our world in such crucial times, and they will conclude with the author that ‘now is the time of mercy’!”
Fr. Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R., author of Fatima for Today
“What do the Divine Mercy and the New Evangelization have to do with each other? Everything. They have everything to do with each other if we understand that ‘now is the time of mercy’. This book teaches that mercy is the gateway to truth in a wounded and suffering world.”
George Weigel, biographer of St. John Paul II
