I have been doing the Novena since Good Friday. Unfortunately I am going to work in Scotland (I live in Ireland) for an extended period, to a remote island. I am not able to make the Divine Mercy devotions in my local area. I wondered if there is any way to obtain the promise of the Divine Mercy where there are no public devotions? Can I venerate the image on my own in a church? Must the image be blessed using a particular formula? Is there any way round this?
If not, then maybe next year, but probably not, as I will still be in Scotland: my holiday allowance is not so generous as to enable me to stay on at home to include both Easter and Divine Mercy Sundays.
