As revealed by Our Lord to St. Faustina Kowalska Jesus further asked that this Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. He gave her an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena, saving for the last day the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent of whom He said:

 

These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.' The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy.

In her diary, Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:

 

On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.

 

The different souls prayed for on each day of the novena are:

 

 

 

 

♦DAY 1 - All mankind, especially sinners

♦DAY 2 - The souls of priests and religious

♦DAY 3 - All devout and faithful souls

♦DAY 4 - Those who do not believe in Jesus and those who do not yet know Him

♦DAY 5 - The souls of separated brethren

♦DAY 6 - The meek and humble souls and the souls of children

♦DAY 7 - The souls who especially venerate and glorify Jesus' mercy

♦DAY 8 - The souls who are detained in purgatory; and

♦DAY 9 - The souls who have become lukewarm.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy may also be offered each day for the day's intention.

 

 

 

The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.

 

2. Then on the Our Father Beads say the following:

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

 

3. On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following:

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

(Repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).

 

4. Conclude with (three times):

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

 

 

In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy,

Sister tells us:

"I saw a great light, with God the Father in the midst of it.

Between this light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the Cross

and in such a way that God, wanting to look upon the earth, had to

look through Our Lord's wounds and I understood that God blessed

the earth for the sake of Jesus."

 

Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:

 

"I saw an Angel, the executor of God's wrath... about to strike

the earth...I began to beg God earnestly for the world with words

which I heard interiorly. As I prayed in this way, I saw the

Angel's helplessness, and he could not carry out the just

punishment...."

 

The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on

ordinary rosary beads:

 

"First say one 'Our Father', 'Hail Mary', and 'I believe'. Then on

the large beads say the following words:

 

'Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity

of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement

for our sins and those of the whole world.'

 

On the smaller beads you are to say the following words:

 

'For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the

whole world.'

 

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:

 

'Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us

and on the whole world'.

 

Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:

 

"Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who

says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests

will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most

hardened sinner, if he recites this Chaplet even once, will

receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to

know My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to

those who trust in My Mercy...."

 

"....When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I

will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just

judge but as the Merciful Savior".

 

This is prayed along with the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
