Help MOMM travel with message

With a van full of audio and visual equipment and over-sized sacred images, Joan and Dave Maroney — Mother of Mercy Messengers — drive around the country. The husband-and-wife team gives dramatic presentations of St. Faustina's Diary to about 100 parishes each year. Their innovative style of presenting The Divine Mercy message and devotion has captured the hearts of tens of thousands of people.

Divine Mercy presentations are tailored to adults or school children. Parish presentations usually are given within the sacredness of a church, placing participants in the presence of our Eucharistic Lord. To set the mood, Joan and Dave use meditative music and illuminated images of Jesus (The Divine Mercy), our Blessed Mother, St. Faustina, and the Shroud of Turin. Based on the Diary of St. Faustina and sacred scripture, this dramatic presentation powerfully communicates the message of God's merciful love.

The presentation for school children speaks directly to them. "The school program is a catechism in many ways," says Dave. "It's a teaching on the Church in a more informal, interactive format. In the high school program, the students can really relate to the sinful soul, the despairing soul, and the suffering soul in St. Faustina's Diary. The message of mercy is one of hope and healing for young people."

In bringing the message from the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy to local parishes, Joan and Dave end each presentation with the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Their goal is to get people to trust our Lord, pray the chaplet, and understand the passion of Christ, specifically through the eyes of His Blessed Mother.

Although this is a message of healing and grace, Divine Mercy as a way of life is emphasized. Dave and Joan encourage people to lives of mercy in their workplace and in their families.

"The more we understand how merciful God is, the more we can be merciful to others." - Joan Maroney
