The Second Greatest Story Ever Told
In The Second Greatest Story Ever Told, bestselling author Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, reveals St. John Paul II's witness for our time. Building on the prophetic voices of Margaret Mary Alacoque, Thérèse of Lisieux, Maximilian Kolbe, and Faustina Kowalska, The Second Greatest Story Ever Told is more than a historical account of the Great Mercy Pope. This book expounds on the profound connection between Divine Mercy and Marian consecration. It serves as an inspiration for all those who desire to bear witness to the mercy of God, focused on Christ and formed by Mary. Now is the time of mercy. Now is the time to make John Paul's story your own.
"God’s mercy is the gift that’s so great it makes us wonder: Can it really be true? There must be a catch. Fr. Gaitley tells the story of Divine Mercy and Marian consecration in this popular history of the great devotional currents of the century just past.
This is not an academic exercise. This is a page-turner — and a life-turner — because so much turns on the question of God’s love for us, and the ways we love him in return. This book about Divine Mercy and Marian consecration in our time needs to become the backstory of my devotional life and yours."
