The Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday

When Jesus taught the Chaplet of Divine Mercy to Saint Faustina, He asked her to recite it during the nine days before the Feast of Divine Mercy – the first Sunday following Easter.However, the Chaplet may be recited at any time.

In view of the current situations in the World today, I respectfully suggest that we recite the Chaplet, not only at the three o’clock hour as was requested, but as many times throughout the day as we are able to.The World is in need of God’s Mercy more now, than ever before.

The Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday

When Jesus taught the Chaplet of Divine Mercy to Saint Faustina, He asked her to recite it during the nine days before the Feast of Divine Mercy – the first Sunday following Easter.However, the Chaplet may be recited at any time.In view of the current situations in the World today, I respectfully suggest that we recite the Chaplet, not only at the three o’clock hour as was requested, but as many times throughout the day as we are able to.The World is in need of God’s Mercy more now, than ever before.

At the request of Jesus, Saint Faustina used this Chaplet to fight off a multitude of devils waiting for the soul of a dying man. (Dairy of St. Faustina, passage # 1565).

We too can use it to fight off the evil one and his minions, which are trying to take control of the World. God has provided us with the ‘weapon’, may we use it to its full advantage. Let us join with family, friends, neighbors etc. to beg God’s Mercy “on us and on the whole World.”

Please feel free to photocopy and distribute this information. Send it to everyone you know, worldwide. Flood your Churches (with your Priest’s permission), pass it out at your Prayer Groups etc. Let us form an Army of Divine Mercy Prayer Warriors, and take back the World from the hands of the enemy.

“Five of you will put a hundred of your foes to flight, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand of them …” Lev. 26:8. There is tremendous power in United Intercession.

“More things are wrought by Prayer that this World dreams of.”

Prayed on ordinary rosary beads, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is an intercessory prayer that Our Lord specifically told Saint Faustina to recite during the nine days before the Feast of Mercy (the first Sunday after Easter). He then added: By this Novena, [of Chaplets] I will grant every possible grace to souls (Diary, 796).

Begin with One Our Father, One Hail Mary, One Apostles' Creed

On the large bead before each decade pray 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.

On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade the following prayer is repeated: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding Doxology: (after five decades) Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. (Three times)

How to Pray the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy (On ordinary rosary beads) (Diary, 476)

The Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Apostles' Creed

(Text from official approved translation. See Holy Saturday Liturgy in the Roman Missal.)

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

On the Large Bead before Each Decade:

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 10 Small Beads of Each Decade: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding Doxology: (after five decades) Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. (Three times)

The Novena to The Divine Mercy (Diary, 1209-1229)

It is greatly recommended that the following novena intentions and prayers be prayed together with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, since Our Lord specifically asked for a novena of Chaplets, especially before the Feast of Mercy.

FIRST DAY

"Today bring to Me ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me."

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.

SECOND DAY

"Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS, and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy. It was they who gave Me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as through channels My mercy flows out upon mankind."

Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service,* that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard -- upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.

* In the original text, Saint Faustina uses the pronoun "us" since she was offering this prayer as a consecrated religious sister. The wording adapted here is intended to make the prayer suitable for universal use.

THIRD DAY

"Today bring to Me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought Me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness."

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.

FOURTH DAY

"Today bring to Me THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD* AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME. I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My Heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy."

Most Compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

*Our Lord's original words here were "the pagans." Since the pontificate of Pope John XXIII, the Church has seen fit to replace this term with clearer and more appropriate terminology.

FIFTH DAY

"Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM MY CHURCH,* and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church, My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion."

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.

*Our Lord's original words here were "heretics and schismatics," since He spoke to Saint Faustina within the context of her times. As of the Second Vatican Council, Church authorities have seen fit not to use those designations in accordance with the explanation given in the Council's Decree on Ecumenism (n.3).

Every Pope since the Council has reaffirmed that usage. Saint Faustina herself, her heart always in harmony with the mind of the Church, most certainly would have agreed. When at one time, because of the decisions of her superiors and father confessor, she was not able to execute Our Lord's inspirations and orders, she declared: "I will follow Your will insofar as You will permit me to do so through Your representative. O my Jesus " I give priority to the voice of the Church over the voice with which You speak to me" (497). The Lord confirmed her action and praised her for it.

SIXTH DAY

"Today bring to Me THE MEEK AND HUMBLE SOULS AND THE SOULS OF LITTLE CHILDREN, and immerse them in My mercy. These souls most closely resemble My Heart. They strengthened Me during My bitter agony. I saw them as earthly Angels, who will keep vigil at My altars. I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace. Only the humble soul is capable of receiving My grace. I favor humble souls with My confidence."

Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You take in them: Bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

SEVENTH DAY

"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." 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 text leads one to conclude that in the first prayer directed to Jesus, Who is the Redeemer, it is "victim" souls and contemplatives that are being prayed for; those persons, that is, that voluntarily offered themselves to God for the salvation of their neighbor (see Col 1:24; 2 Cor 4:12). This explains their close union with the Savior and the extraordinary efficacy that their invisible activity has for others. In the second prayer, directed to the Father from whom comes "every worthwhile gift and every genuine benefit,"we recommend the "active" souls, who promote devotion to The Divine Mercy and exercise with it all the other works that lend themselves to the spiritual and material uplifting of their brethren.

EIGHTH DAY

"Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ARE DETAINED IN PURGATORY, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice." Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.

NINTH DAY

"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 soul 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.' For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy."

Most Compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.

Dear Freepers in Christ,

Many Thanks for your positive and uplifting messages on the Divine Mercy Novena Thread.

Can I add you all to my ping list for Father Altier's Awesome Homilies which I have been posting on some Threads for quite some time now.

Please check out the two Threads that I posted yesterday for Homilies preached by Father Altier for Holy Thursday and Good Friday respectively.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/1613180/posts

Good Friday Homily 2002 preached by Father Altier.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/1612937/posts

HOMILIES PREACHED BY FATHER ALTIER ON HOLY THURSDAY IN 2004 AND 2005.

My Parents and I have been responsible for promoting the Devotion to the Divine Mercy as well as the message of Divine Mercy in various parts of India as well as among Expatriate Catholics working in various countries in the Persian Gulf and who we know.

We still run on a smaller scale now an "Apostolate dedicated to the Divine Mercy".

For a number of years in the 90's-- a "Third Order Carmelite" from Hong Kong used to help us a lot by sending us Printed Literature on the Divine Mercy which we used to disseminate in various places in India like Bombay, Goa, Delhi,Dubai, Kuwait, and even as far as Australia and Canada specially among Indian Catholics.

I am a Traditional/Conservative Indian Catholic of Portuguese Descent from the Former Portuguese Colony of Goa on the South- West Coast of India. My Ancestors were converted to Catholicism around 430 years ago by zealous Portuguese Missionaries in Goa.

JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU.

P.S.- Message to Freeper samiam1972:

I have just read on your Home Page regarding the new arrival in your family. Please keep me in your prayers for a God-Fearing,Orthodox, and Caring Catholic Woman who will be my wife asap.

Dear Freepers in Christ,

Sometime, next week I will be posting a Thread which will have all the Homilies preached by Father Altier from 2001-2005 on "Divine Mercy Sunday".

I strongly believe that Father Altier is one of the most powerful Preachers I have ever come across regarding the "Divine Mercy Devotion". The only other Priest that has impressed me has been Father John Corapi SOLT

In Christ,

*Our Lord's original words here were "the pagans." Since the pontificate of Pope John XXIII, the Church has seen fit to replace this term with clearer and more appropriate terminology.

Now that's pretty funny... the Lord wasn't clear, and didn't use appropriate terminology? How insulting to Our Lord.

As of the Second Vatican Council, Church authorities have seen fit not to use those designations in accordance with the explanation given in the Council's Decree on Ecumenism (n.3).

Something that happened about 25 years early wasn't "within the context of her times"? Why golly if that ain't yet another stroke of genius for ya.

The Divine Mercy is a fine devotion and I'm a real fan of it, but let me tell you something... I'm not going to let some clown change the words of Christ on me and pretend it was the Church that ordered it that way. When I say this novena, I'm using the good old words heretics, schismatics, and pagans. If that's what Jesus called 'em, then that's what they are.

Every Pope since the Council has reaffirmed that usage.

Bull. Show me.

Saint Faustina herself, her heart always in harmony with the mind of the Church, most certainly would have agreed.

Sure. Once we're done pretending to read her thoughts 70 years later, we'll start in on the Lord. Someone has to be real, real dense to fall for this kind of revisionism.

Dear reductio:

If you'll look closely at what SOJC posted, you will see that he was quoting from information put out by the Congregation of Marians and the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. I'm pretty sure the editorial comments were theirs and not SOJC's. I agree that they have a lot of audacity to change Our Lord's words. I think Jesus knew exactly which words He meant to use, or else He would have used other ones. It never fails to amaze me when people claim to know better than Jesus what He "really" meant!

Dear Freepers in Christ,(Message for Reductio)

Greetings. I agree whole heartedly with what you have said. I am personally in favor of the original wording of the Prayers and Novena composed by Saint Faustina.

I did not engage in any modification but rather I took it ad verbatim from the Marian Fathers Web page where these comments were made by the Marians themselves. The Main Article was taken by me from Mike Brown's Web Site http://www.spiritdaily.com . If you check it out, it will confirm 100 % what I am saying.

Please I beg you do not attack me on this Thread too. I thought I was doing something good and positive as Freepers Nihil Obstat and Ciexyz said that I was giving a timely reminder to all who are interested in starting the Divine Mercy Novena this Good Friday.

Already, I am facing constant attacks on another Thread by Freepers who are in denial about the Persecution of Christians and Catholics in India as well as my personal experiences regarding discrimination as a Christian Catholic Professional in India.

This discrimination I have faced is being faced by other Christian and Catholic Professionals in the past as well as present. That is why a large number of Indian Catholic Professionals have been migrating to a number of Countries in the West for the last 15- 20 years and this is ongoing.

Many Thanks to Freeper nanetteclaret for her continuous support to me as well as to some New Freepers like Dangus, Calabash, NYer, and Salvation.

Please Pray for me.

In Christ,

An Original Quote from Saint Faustina's Diary "Crucified Jesus Christ, You are my Strength and my Salvation".

I'm not attacking you; what you're doing is a great thing, promoting this devotion. I just find it amazingly arrogant that some people think their "spirit of Vatican II" nonsense somehow trumps the words of Our Lord. Keep promoting the devotion; people need it.

Already, I am facing constant attacks on another Thread by Freepers who are in denial about the Persecution of Christians and Catholics in India as well as my personal experiences regarding discrimination as a Christian Catholic Professional in India.

That's fantastic. You know, it is a blessing to be attacked for being a Catholic as long as it's because of Catholicism that you're being attacked. Congratulations and keep it up.
