“W

itnesses to Divine Mercy.“ That’s how the

Very Rev. Fr. Kazimierz Chwalek, MIC,

vice-coordinator for the North American

Congress on Divine Mercy (NACOM) and provincial

superior for the Marian Fathers in the United States and

Argentina, characterized the participants in NACOM

II, held from Oct. 21-22 at Prince of Peace Catholic

Community in Houston, Texas.

“They’re real,” said Fr. Kaz. “Their commitment to

Christ is visible.” Their dedication to Divine Mercy is not

the work of one day; “they’ve been teaching, guiding,

instructing, inviting, inspiring — these are the leaders.

And that’s why I’m very, very happy.”

Organized by the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate

Conception in conjunction with the Catholic Marketing

Network (CMN), and Fullness of Truth Catholic Evan-

gelization Ministries, the Congress attracted more

than 900 attendees from 19 states and around the

world, including pilgrims from Bahrain, Singapore,

and the Philippines.

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, archbishop of Galveston-

Houston, Texas, was lead celebrant at Mass on th

e second day of the Congress.

“Sisters and brothers, it is a joy to be present with you

this morning on this Memorial Feast Day of St. John Paul II

in the midst of a Congress on Divine Mercy,” said Cardinal

DiNardo, “for indeed St. John Paul II was a great apostle of

Divine Mercy, and led on by his friendship and by the spiri-

tual communion he had with St. Faustina, he was able to

bring to the whole Church the beauty of understanding the

depth of the Scriptures and the Church’s faith and tradition

on the overwhelming mercy of the Lord.”
