A group of Catholics and Protestants from the School of Education and Human Development (SED) recently prayed the Divine Mercy chaplet proposed to the world by Saint Faustina Kowalska under the guidance of a Catholic priest.

Whilst some Protestants might scoff at the idea of praying a very “Catholic” prayer, 21-year-old John Bernard Ordoñez Caasi noted that even the prominent American Evangelical pastor and author Rick Warren is said to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet everyday.
