Divine Mercy

“Do whatever is within your power to spread devotion to My mercy. I will make up for what you lack.” (Diary 1074)

I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy.” (Diary, 687)

Divine Mercy

One of the promises associated with the 3 O’clock Prayer is that Jesus will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Him in virtue of His Passion. This is a powerful promise that speaks to the heart of the Divine Mercy Devotion: that Jesus is merciful and compassionate towards those who come to Him with a sincere heart.

The Chaplet is another powerful prayer associated with Divine Mercy Devotion. Jesus promised that through this prayer, we would obtain everything if what we ask for is compatible with His will. This promise reminds us that we must align our will with the will of God if we want to receive His blessings and graces.

The Novena of Chaplets is another powerful prayer associated with Divine Mercy Devotion. Jesus promised that by praying this Novena, He would grant every possible grace to souls. This is a wonderful promise that encourages us to persevere in prayer and to trust in the mercy and compassion of Jesus.

The Feast of Mercy is a special day in the Divine Mercy Devotion that is celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. On this day, Jesus promises to pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of His Mercy. The soul that goes to Confession and receives Holy Communion on this day shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. This is a powerful promise that reminds us of the importance of Confession and Holy Communion in our spiritual lives.

There are promises associated with spreading Devotion. Jesus encourages us to do whatever is within our power to spread Devotion to His mercy and promises to make up for what we lack. Souls who spread the honor of His Mercy are promised to be shielded through their entire lives, and at the hour of death, Jesus will not be a Judge for them but the Merciful Savior.

Ask for God’s Mercy

Sin is a part of human nature. As much as we try to resist temptation, we are bound to stumble and fall into it at one point or another. We often think of sinners as people who have committed heinous crimes, but in reality, sin is any act that goes against the will of God. It could be something as small as telling a white lie or as grave as murder. Regardless of the magnitude of our sins, we can always ask for God’s mercy, and He is willing to forgive us.
The Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska is a collection of writings that detail her experiences of encountering Jesus and His message of mercy. In one of her entries, Jesus tells her that He performs works of mercy in every soul and that the greater the sinner, the greater their right to His mercy. This message is a powerful reminder that no matter how far we may have strayed from the path of righteousness, we can always turn back and ask for forgiveness.
God’s mercy is not conditional. He does not demand that we meet a certain standard before He is willing to forgive us. All we need to do is repent sincerely and ask for His forgiveness.
It is important to note that seeking God’s mercy is not a one-time event. We are bound to sin again, and when we do, we must seek His forgiveness once more. However, this does not mean that we should take His mercy for granted and continue to sin. Rather, we should strive to live a life that is pleasing to Him, one that reflects the love and mercy He has shown us.
Trusting in God’s mercy is not only about receiving forgiveness but also about trusting in His plan for our lives. When we trust in His mercy, we acknowledge that all our affairs are in His hands, and we surrender our will to His. This surrendering of our will to God is not a sign of weakness but rather a recognition of His sovereignty and our need for Him.
The message of God’s mercy is a powerful one that we should never take for granted. No matter how hard our sins are, we can always ask for His forgiveness, and He is willing to forgive us. Trusting in His mercy means surrendering our will to His and acknowledging that all our affairs are in His hands. So let us turn to Him, seek His forgiveness, and strive to live a life that is pleasing to Him.

3 O’clock Prayer

The 3 o’clock Prayer is a powerful prayer to be prayed at the sacred hour – 3:00 p.m. As revealed in the Diary of St. Faustina, Jesus promises to grant any request made in virtue of His Passion during this hour, refusing nothing to the soul that approaches Him with faith and trust. This is a time to connect with Jesus in a profound way and to ask for His mercy and grace, not only for ourselves but also for others. Through the 3 o’clock prayer, we can obtain everything that we need and experience the transformative power of His love in our lives. Let us make it a habit to pause at 3 p.m. each day and enter into the mystery of the Divine Mercy, confident in the knowledge that Jesus is waiting to pour out His blessings upon us.

Divine Mercy Chaplet

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a powerful and effective prayer that can transform our lives and bring us closer to the love and mercy of Jesus. As revealed in the Diary of St. Faustina, Jesus promised that those who pray the chaplet will be able to obtain everything they ask for, as long as it is compatible with His will. This is an incredible promise that gives us confidence and hope in the power of prayer. Moreover, the souls that say the chaplet will be embraced by His mercy during their lifetime and especially at the hour of their death. This is a tremendous comfort and a source of hope for anyone who is seeking to draw closer to Jesus and experience His love and mercy. Through the Chaplet, we can entrust ourselves and our loved ones to Jesus’ care and invite His grace into our lives. Let us say the Chaplet with faith and devotion, confident that Jesus is listening and responding to our prayers, and let us make it a regular part of our prayer life and experience the blessings that flow from the mercy of our Lord and Savior.

Divine Mercy Novena

The Divine Mercy Novena is a powerful nine-day devotion that allows us to draw closer to Jesus and receive His abundant graces. Through this novena, Jesus promises to grant every possible grace to souls who devote themselves to this prayer for nine consecutive days. The Diary of St. Fustina reveals that during these nine days, Jesus desires that souls draw strength and refreshment from the fountain of His mercy, especially in times of hardship and even at the hour of death. This is a beautiful opportunity to bring our intentions and those of others to the fountain of His mercy, where we can draw strength, refreshment, and whatever grace we need to face the challenges of life.

Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine Mercy Sunday, also known as the Feast of Divine Mercy, is a day of great significance and promise for Christians worldwide.

Bible Verse

Bible Verse About God’s Mercy

Divine Mercy Novena
Divine Mercy Church

Mercy is the abstention from imposing a righteous punishment. The Bible has many stories of God’s mercy that serve as helpful illustrations. The whole manifestation of God’s mercy is shown in Jesus Christ.
In Matthew 18:23–27, we see another demonstration of God’s kindness. In this parable, Jesus compares a rich ruler who lends his own money to a debtor. When the ruler demanded the return of his money, the debtor came and pleaded for mercy. The ruler forgives the debt in turn. So, as we could not repay the debt to God, He has fully forgiven us of it in Christ. God is merciful and gracious. He is slow to anger, and he shows his steadfast love and faithfulness in eternal abundance. The basis of God’s mercy is His love for us. His mercy stems in significant measure from the fact that He is love (1 John 4:8). In relation to what we have done and insists on doing, we deserve to be punished. However, since God loves us and is merciful, He sent His Son to be the savior of humankind (John 3:16). Thus, we enjoy God’s kindness while Jesus suffers a horrible, painful death on our behalf.
God wants us to be with Him because of His love for us. God’s compassion and mercy are needed by all men of all generations. Jesus surrendered His life for us as a sacrificial lamb (Isaiah 53:7; John 1:29). God allowed His Son to bear the judgment we deserved so that we could be forgiven. His extreme act of mercy was described in these verses from Ephesians 2:4–5: “That is the highest expression of God’s love and mercy to us. What this means is that mercy ultimately wins out over condemnation.

Merciful God

Pellentesque in ipsum id orci porta dapibus. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Donec velit neque, auctor sit amet aliquam vel, ullamcorper sit amet ligula.

Divine Mercy Chaplet

Every one of us is guilty of having sinned. However, our sentence has been lenient; thus, the judge, who is our Merciful Father, has granted us mercy.
The reality is that every person who has been saved by Jesus has received mercy.
Though we have not done anything to earn it, God has always shown mercy to us. Divine grace cannot be earned but is a gift given to persons who were terribly guilty and completely undeserving of it.
Mercy and compassion are freely given by God, but they are not granted without any action on our part. God does not simply pardon us. We all must make some kind of sacrifice for our wrongdoing. God showed His great love and compassion by sending His only Son to bear the penalty for our sins.
On whom God has mercy, He shows mercy. Through the innocent blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ paid the punishment for our sins. We can only wish that this is the kind of mercy that God provides to people who have not done anything to be entitled to it: the flawless justice of God’s goodness brought to those who cannot earn it through the unearned sufferings of Christ in our place.

Divine Mercy Message

Ask for His Mercy

In the midst of our heavy and repetitive sins, it can be easy to feel unworthy of approaching Jesus and asking for His mercy. However, we must remember that His mercy is boundless and unconditional. No matter how intense our sins may be or how habitual our sins have become, we are invited to draw closer to Jesus and seek His forgiveness. His love and mercy for us are so immense that it surpasses all understanding, and He desires nothing more than to pour out His grace upon us. By approaching the fountain of His mercy, we open ourselves up to an ocean of blessings that only He can provide. Let us not hesitate to come to Him with humility and trust, for He will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request in virtue of His Passion. May we all be transformed by His mercy and experience the peace and joy that come from being in His loving embrace.

Completely Trust in His Mercy

When we put all of our faith in Jesus’ mercy, we give ourselves over to the endless blessings that only He can give. In other words, we leave it to Jesus whatever plans we have, whatever problems we are facing, and whatever challenges are coming our way. He longs to pour out His grace upon us and desires nothing more than to grant unimaginable blessings to those who place their trust in Him. It is through trust that the vessel of His mercy is filled, and the more we trust, the more we will receive. We must remember that Jesus’ mercy is always available to us and is willingly offered to us. When we surrender our fears and insecurities to Him and place our complete trust in His loving embrace, He will lavish us with His grace and transform our lives in ways we never thought possible. Trust is the key that unlocks the door to His mercy, and we must be willing to surrender ourselves completely to His will. By putting our faith in Him, we open ourselves up to a world of possibilities and allow Him to work in us in ways that we cannot even imagine. Let us place our trust in Him today and every day, and allow His mercy to fill us with peace, joy, and love.

Be Merciful to Others

Performing works of Mercy is a beautiful expression of our love for Jesus and our commitment to living out His teachings. As followers of Jesus, we are called to perform works of Mercy as an expression of our love for Him. Yes, we are called to show Mercy to our neighbors always and everywhere, whether it be through deeds, words, or prayer. Each of these ways contains the fullness of Mercy and is a testament to our love for Him. It is important to remember that we do not need material resources to carry out acts of Mercy. Even if we do not have material means with which to carry out an act of Mercy, we can still practice spiritual Mercy, which is much more meritorious. It is through these acts of Mercy that we show our love for Jesus and demonstrates our commitment to living a life that is centered on compassion and kindness toward others. By performing deeds of Mercy, we can bring hope and healing to those who are in need and make a difference in the world around us. Let us not forget that by failing to show Mercy to others, we run the risk of not receiving the Mercy of Jesus on the day of judgment. May we all strive to show Mercy in our daily lives and be a reflection of God’s love for those around us. Let us embrace the opportunity to show Mercy in all its forms and let our love for Jesus shine through our actions. By doing this, we will be blessed with His endless love and Mercy, and our lives will be full of His love.

Divine Mercy is an unfathomable ocean of Mercy that is available to all of us. It is an infinite and boundless gift that is available to everyone, no matter how great their sins may be.

It doesn’t matter how grave and gross our sins may be; we are invited to come closer to Jesus and seek His forgiveness. Jesus’ message of Divine Mercy is threefold: ask for His Mercy, trust in Him completely, and be merciful to others.

By doing so, we open ourselves up to an ocean of blessings that only He can provide. Let us not hesitate to approach Him with humility and trust, for He will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request in virtue of His Passion.

The second message of Divine Mercy is that we must trust completely in His Mercy.

He longs to pour out His grace upon us and desires nothing more than to grant unimaginable blessings to those who place their trust in Him. Trust is the key that unlocks the door to His Mercy, and we must be willing to surrender ourselves completely to His will.

The third message of Divine Mercy is to be merciful to others. As followers of Jesus, we are called to perform acts of Mercy as an expression of our love for Him.

By performing deeds of Mercy, we can bring hope and healing to those who are in need and make a difference in the world around us. Let us not forget that by failing to show Mercy to others, we run the risk of not receiving the Mercy of Jesus on the day of judgment.

By embracing these messages, we can transform our lives and become the loving, compassionate, and kind individuals that Jesus calls us to be. The Devotion to the Divine Mercy is a call to approach Jesus with humility and trust, to completely surrender ourselves to His will, and to show compassion and kindness to those around us. By doing so, we will be blessed with His endless love and Mercy, and our lives will be transformed in ways that we never thought possible. Let us embrace the three messages of Divine Mercy and become a reflection of God’s love for those around us.

So, let us approach the fountain of His Mercy with humility and trust, surrender ourselves completely to His will, and perform acts of Mercy as an expression of our love for Him. Let us show Mercy to our neighbors always and everywhere, whether it be through deeds, words, or prayer.
