Master Craftsman, Broken Tools (with Fr. Chris Alar, MIC)
Why God Works Through Us, Hears Intercessory Prayers, and Grants Divine Mercy
New Books Network 2023
Father Chris talks about his devotion to Our Lady, and what he has learned from St. Maria Faustyna Kowalska, the poor Polish country girl, whose visions of and friendship with Jesus gave us Divine Mercy Sunday. Father Chris calls it the “Extra Credit of Grace.” We also talk about suicide and intercessory prayer and why God choses to work with broken tools. Fr. Chris is Provincial Superior of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception in the United States and Argentina.
