Quilt of Valor takes shape at Table Rock Senior Center

By Ray Kappel

The Foundation was started by a Blue Star mom. Her son was deployed at the time and she had a vivid dream of him, struggling to sleep. Then in the dream came the image of him covered with a quilt, able to sleep. He was comforted by the quilt and so the idea for the group began.

Divine Mercy Image carries message of God's love

Divine Mercy33 is comprised of a laity group dedicated to uniting and sharing the message of Divine Mercy… (Jesus I Trust in You) beyond the walls of our homes and churches.

The Divine Mercy Image is a depiction of Jesus based on the devotion initiated by Saint Faustina Kowalska. In 1931, Jesus appeared to her with rays radiating from His heart and said, “I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You.”
