Divine Mercy

‘Anyone, anytime, anywhere’

In her diary, St. 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;
DAY  9 – The souls who have become lukewarm.

Our Lord said to Saint Faustina:

Encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given you …
Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death …
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 … Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation.

Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from my infinite mercy.

I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy … Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.

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.

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

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

Optional Closing Prayer

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
