Divine Mercy Chaplet and Offering the Divinity
#5
I do not like the devotion at all. I was taught that God is “a spirit, infinitely perfect.”  What is an “infinitely perfect” spirit?  One who has infinitely perfect attributes. How can the Divine Mercy devotion’s claim that God’s greatest attribute is mercy be reconciled with that concept?  Pope St. John Paul II’s encyclical “Dives in Misericordiae” explains this, but it doesn’t go far enough. Personally, I think that encyclical is more of an attempt to present something from his homeland to the Universal Church than anything else. Is that a bad thing?  Not necessarily. Who says the pope can’t be human? It’s a problem, however, when the devotion from his homeland that he chose has possible flaws in its most fundamental underlying philosophical and theological assumptions.
