- May 2, 2005Tony,
I enjoyed very much your email in which you shared your experience of the
Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Our past Pontiff has made the world more aware of the
great spirituality which has been given to the world from the Slavic countries.
Prior to John Paul II, the only Slavic inspiriation that i knew was the
wonderful and tender Infant Of Prague. The Infant stood in every household of my
whole family that i can remember when growing up.
my mother, in particular, felt a devotion to the Infant and i can remember
that this was the first statue she ever bought for me to put in my bedroom.
I noticed that you belong to a Croatian parish. my father's mother was from
a village called Raslavice in very eastern Slovakia. i am starting to believe
that she may have had Croatian roots. In another year or so, i am going to
have the opportunity to research my family much better.
thanks again for sharing and maybe you will make the trip someday to
i have thought about it.
