Divine Mercy in Bangkok, Thailand

This is a Divine Mercy story you will not want to miss.  It is a story about a thread of grace that began in a prison cell and gently wound its way around the world to knock on a door that opened in Thailand.  This is a great story of faith, and we all could use one right now.  Please share this link to "Knock and the Door Will Open:  Divine Mercy in Bangkok, Thailand."

Bangkok, the Capitol of the Kingdom of Thailand, is a city of about 8.5 million people. In Thai, the great city’s name is almost unpronounceable to the Western World, and the longest name of any city on Earth at 156 characters. I don’t expect you to memorize it, but in the Thai language Bangkok’s name is:
Krungthepmahanakorn Amornrattanakosin Mahintrayuthaya Mahadilokpob Noparat Rajataniburirom Udomrajanivej Mahasatharn Amornpimarn Awatarnsat Sakatadtiya Wisanukamprasit.  For daily use in Thai, the name is simply abbreviated to “Krungthep” which in English means “City of Angels.” Our friend, Pornchai Moontri, and I met one of those angels a few weeks ago.
It’s a complicated story, but it’s an amazing story, and it meanders down a long and winding road. It begins in a New Hampshire prison cell and threads its mysterious connections all the way around the globe. In the end you may find any lingering doubts about Divine Mercy falling away. Divine Mercy has opened an impenetrable door for Pornchai Moontri.
