Devotion

February 10, 2017

Jesus said, "Call upon My mercy on behalf of sinners; I desire their salvation. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion.  This is the prayer:

Oh Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You." (186)

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

Our Lord told St. Faustina: "At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this Chaplet of Divine Mercy; or when others say it for a dying person, the pardon is the same.  When this (#811) chaplet is said by the bedside of a dying person, God's anger is placated, unfathomable mercy envelopes the soul, and the very depths of My tender mercy are moved for the sake of the sorrowful passion of My Son.  Oh what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet; it pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me." #848

Oh Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. (84)

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

During the last 4 years of St. Faustina's life, Our Lord asked her to keep a diary to record and relate encounters of her soul with God.  He directed her to establish a new devotion to His mercy, The Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Each week a quote from St. Faustina's Diary will be presented. "My daughter, encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given to you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the Chaplet. Write that when they say this prayer in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as a just Judge but as the merciful Savior (Diary1541). At the hour of their death, I will defend as My own glory every soul that will say this Chaplet: or when others say it for a dying person, the indulgence is the same." (Diary811).


Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

Jesus spoke, "How very much I desire the salvation of souls!  My dearest secretary, write that I want to pour out My divine life into human souls and sanctify them, if only they were willing to accept My Grace.  The greatest sinners would achieve great sanctity if only they would trust in My mercy.  The very inner depths of My Being are overflowing with mercy, and it is being poured out upon all I have created.  My delight is to act in a human soul and to fill it with My mercy and to justify it."

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

Jesus told St. Faustina, "My mercy is greater than your sins and those of the entire world. Who can measure the extent of My goodness?  For you I have descended from heaven to earth; for you I allowed Myself to be nailed to the Cross; for you I let My Sacred Heart be pierced with a lance, opening wide the source of mercy for you.  Come, then, with trust to draw graces form this fountain.  I never reject a contrite heart."

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

In the Novena to Divine Mercy, Jesus said, "Today bring to Me souls who have become lukewarm, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy.  These souls wound My Heart most painfully.  My souls suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls.  They were the reason I cried out: 'Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.’  The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy."

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.

Jesus said to Faustina, "I demand from you deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Me.  You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere.  You must not shrink from this or try to excuse yourself from it.  I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first---by deed, the second---by word, the third---by prayer.  In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is unquestionable proof of love for Me."

Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.


December 11, 2016

Jesus spoke to St. Faustina, "Today bring to Me the souls who especially venerate and glorify My mercy, and immerse them in My mercy.  These souls sorrowed most over My Passion and entered most deeply into My Spirit.  They are living images of My Compassionate Heart.  These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life.  Not one of them will go into the fire of hell.  I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death."
   
Prayer: Jesus I trust in You.
