Dear Father,

  • Due to the coronavirus, are we still able to obtain the Divine Mercy indulgence this year if we say the (9) nine day novena beginning on Good Friday?

Thank you and Happy Easter!

Bob replied:

Dear Christopher,

We are not priests, but the answer is yes.

Divine Mercy doesn't change just because the world has closed down. If fact, we could honestly say that God's Mercy is in even greater abundance, so by all means, do the novena.
