The Novena to The Divine Mercy – Day 7

In preparation for Divine Mercy Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter, please take a few minutes today to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy – Novena, Day 7.

Seventh Day of the Novena

“Today bring to Me the souls who especially venerate and glorify My Mercy and immerse them in My mercy.”  -as dictated by Our Lord to Saint Faustina

Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg, You, O God: Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory. Amen.

The Novena to the Divine Mercy – Day 1

In preparation for Divine Mercy Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter, please take a few minutes today to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy – Novena, Day 1.

First Day of the Novena

“Today bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.”  -as dictated by Our Lord to Saint Faustina

Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.

Mission Prayer

Lord, our God,
help us to walk with You
on the pathway of the beatitudes
and to live out Your mission
in today’s world.

Bind us to all men and women
of our time so that together
we may bring the Good News
to the ends of the earth.

Open our hearts and our Christian communities
to the needy, the afflicted, the oppressed.
May we radiate the Living Christ
and transform our lives
in the hope of the Resurrection.

This prayer we make to You
who are the living God
now and forever.

Amen.
