How Mary is the Foundation for Mercy

Author and Director of the Association of Marian Helpers Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, was a guest on "Franciscan University Presents," broadcast in April on EWTN.

The show, titled "Divine Mercy and Mary," includes host Michael Hernon, Dr. Regis Martin, and Dr. Scott Hahn. The wide-ranging discussion touches upon the revelations of St. Faustina, the Divine Mercy message and devotion, and how Mary teaches us to say yes to Christ's mercy.
