“Carmelite Conversations” Host Frances Harry welcomes guest, Deacon Russell Baldwin to the program. The topic for this program is the “Divine Mercy Devotion” and the Carmelites. We discussed the 5 forms of Devotion to Divine Mercy as presented to St. Faustina from her Diary, now published and available to the public (“Divine Mercy in My Soul: the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska”). Our conversation continued with a comparison of St. Faustina with the well-known Carmelite, St. Therese of Lisieux, who sang the mercies of the Lord in her manuscripts which were compiled and put into book form, known as “Story of a Soul” by St. Therse of Lisieux.
