It actually completes the Sacred Heart, one shows the pierced and inflamed heart and the other shows the blood and water that gushed forth as a fount of mercy for us.

Maybe in the churches you've visited, but I've seen the Divine Mercy image by itself a lot. And do you hear Catholics talking about the Sacred Heart anymore? Most don't, but the love Divine Mercy.

We could easily say, indeed what proves God's greatest attribute is Mercy, is that while we were still sinners, He died for us.


And nobody figured that out until two Popes ago? The traditional attitude is penance for our sins, go to confession when you fail, pray for the conversion of others to the faith, and and for the dead that they may get through Purgatory. Just look at the traditional funeral Mass, with its black vestments and the Dies iræ. All that's largely gone since Vatican II, and the new funeral Mass is almost always a canonisation of the deceased.

There's a fine line between reminding people of God's mercy (which we should remember, lest we fall into despair) and turning it all into a Church of Nice, where everyone's saved (except maybe Hitler, but maybe he repented while he was shooting himself). I think for a lot of trads, the Divine Mercy devotion is just too nice, and they don't like it for that reason.
I posted this article in another thread. Father David Nix did a good job with this.
