The Rosary & Chaplet of Divine Mercy (9781884479151): Vinny Flynn & Still Waters: Books. In 1999 it became a full-time family apostolate which they run from their home. Known to many as "the man who sings the Divine Mercy Chaplet on EWTN," this father of seven has been involved in a ministry of mercy for over thirty years, using his gifts of teaching, writing, counseling, music, and prayer to help people understand the teachings of the Church and open their hearts to the healing touch of God's love. A former Executive Editor of the Marian Helpers Bulletin and former General Manager of Divine Mercy International, Vinny has a special gift of making theological concepts and the teachings of the Church come alive with new meaning and relevancy. His powerful teachings on Divine Mercy, Mary, the Sacraments, and the Father's love have made him a popular speaker at conferences and retreats. Vinny is a member of the Knights of Columbus and has been active in the Catholic Charismatic renewal since 1971, serving for several years on the pastoral leadership team of the Mother of Divine Mercy Prayer Group in Stockbridge. Vinny's family music ministry, Still Waters, features himself and his daughters Colleen, Erin, and Mary, with support vocals from Vinny's wife Donna and their four sons, John, Tim, Brian, and Kevin. The music is gentle and prayerful, with haunting guitar and violin interludes. Seen frequently at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA and on Mother Angelica's EWTN cable network, Still Waters takes its name from the 23rd Psalm. As Vinny explains, "It is our prayer that through our music you will be led beside the still waters into the healing presence of Jesus the Good Shepherd, who alone can restore your soul." John, Brian, and Erin have each released their own solo albums of contemporary Catholic music; joyous, upbeat praise songs that set your feet dancing, alternating with gentle worship songs that bring tears to your eyes and a new love of God to your heart. In 1993, under the spiritual direction of Fr. George Kosicki, CSB, Vinny and Donna established a recording/publishing company, Spirit Song Ministries, to produce and distribute their family music albums, talks on tape, and religious publications. In 2003, the family ministries were incorporated under the name MercySong, Inc.
