Church Street: Our Lady of Vietnam

Mercy is the theme for Our Lady of Vietnam, a Roman Catholic community. (I gleaned this from reading the Google-translated version of their website.) I love their beautiful and graceful church, especially the large gong hanging over the front door.


The mission of Our Lady of Vietnam is to "live united and love each other."

I think, based on their site and the Google translation, that their patron saint is a Polish nun, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, who had visions of Christ during her short life. In these visions, Christ inspired her to create the Divine Mercy devotion.

We could all use a little divine mercy, I think.
