Built To Last

Australia's Divine Mercy Church Opens

July 15, 2021  0

In the wheat fields of western Australia, a monument to the Divine Mercy has been "built to last." The magnificent structure — situated on a former cow paddock — is stunning many with its brilliance. Church Militant's Martina Moyski has more.

Abp. Timothy Costelloe: "Beloved brothers and sisters, we have gathered with joy to dedicate a new church celebrating the Lord's Sacrifice ... ."

This, from Abp. Timothy Costelloe on Corpus Christi Sunday at the opening of the new church outside Perth dedicated to the Divine Mercy.

The Church — the only one named for the Divine Mercy in Australia — has been built over the last 10 years with walls almost 2 feet deep.

Parishioner: "We ran out of money, and so we had a lot of really great donors who helped us a lot."

Local carpenters crafted the pews from Australian jarrah wood.

A local artist painted the Divine Mercy image above the altar and painted carved statues of Our Lady and St. Joseph using pure gold leaf paint.

To border the church, locals transported 1,200 tons of rocks from the countryside.

Carillon bells like those in the Vatican ring out at 3 p.m. every day, calling the faithful to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

Resting in the High Altar is a first-class relic of St. Faustina, the Polish nun responsible for renewed devotion to the Divine Mercy.

While many churches in Democrat-run archdioceses in the United States are being torn down, many are finding comfort in this magnificent new structure reaching toward Heaven.

Many are seeing the opening of the Divine Mercy Church as a clear testament to the power of St. Faustina's prayer: "Jesus, I trust in You."
