Whether you want to deepen your love of Divine Mercy or have a devotion to St. Therese, 33 Days to Merciful Love is the book that will transform you. This stirring sequel to the international best-selling sensation, 33 Days to Morning Glory uses the same 33-day preparation format journeying with one of the most beloved saints of modern times, St. Therese of Lisieux, and concludes with a consecration to Divine Mercy.

That experience set her on fire with Merciful Love, so that everything she did, no matter how small, was done for love of Jesus.
