We will say the Mercy Novena.  It is traditionally prayed a 3:00 pm, but  I have never been able to pray at that time every day, so I just say it when I can.  I will post the entire Novena today, and reminders each day (I hope :D )

Nine day Novena for the Feast of Mercy (The First Sunday  after Easter) begins on Good Friday---                                                             
796)    The Lord told me to say this chaplet for nine days before the Feast of Mercy. It is to begin on Good Friday.   
                                                           
   "By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls."                                                 
                                                           
(1059)   Jesus is commanding me to make a novena before the Feast of Mercy, and today I am to begin it for the  conversion of the whole world and for the recognition of  The Divine Mercy. "So that every soul will praise My  goodness.  I desire trust from My creatures.  Encourage  souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy.  Let the weak, sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even if  it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the  world, all  would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of  My mercy."                                                 
(1209)  Jesus, I trust in You.                             
                                                           
            Novena to the Divine Mercy                     
                                                           
which Jesus instructed me to write down and make before the Feast of Mercy.  It begins on Good Friday.  "I desire that  during these nine days you bring souls to the fount of My mercy, that they may draw there from strength and  refreshment and whatever graces they need in the hardships of life and, especially, at the hour of death."  "On each  day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I  will bring all these souls into the house of My Father. You will do this in this life and in the next.  I will deny nothing to any soul whom you will bring to the fount of My  mercy.  On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My bitter Passion, for graces for these souls."  I  answered, "Jesus, I do not know how to make the novena or  which souls to bring into Your Most Compassionate Heart."   
Jesus replied that He would tell me which souls to bring  each day into His Heart.                                   
                                                           
First Day  (Good Friday)                         
Today bring to me                       
                                                           
           ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS         
   
                                                           
(1210)      "Today, bring Me to 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."                   
                                                           
(1211) 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 the 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.                                       
                                                           
  Oh, omnipotence of Divine Mercy,                         
  Salvation of sinful people,                               
  You are the sea of mercy and compassion;                 
  You aid those who entreat You with humility.             
                                                           
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially 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 forever and ever.  Amen.   

 
Second Day (Holy Saturday) of  9 day Novena for the  Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter:
Today bring to Me                         
                                                           
         THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS   
             
                                                           
(1212)      "Today bring Me the souls of priests and religious,  and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy.  It was   they who gave Me the strength to endure My bitter Passion.  Through them, as through channels, My mercy flows out upon mankind."                     
                                                           
(1213) Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in us, that we may perform worthy works of mercy, and that all who see us may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.                           
                                                           
   The fountain of God's love                               
   Dwells in pure hearts.                                   
   Bathed in the Son of Mercy.                             
   Radiant as the stars, bright as the dawn.               
                                                           
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.                         

                                                           
Third day (Easter Sunday) of 9 day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...
Today bring to Me                       
                                                           
               ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS   
             
                                                           
(1214)       "Today bring 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."                 
                                                           
(1215)  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 of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.             
                                                           
   The miracles of mercy are impenetrable.                 
   Neither the sinner nor just one will fathom them.       
   When You cast upon us an eye of pity,                   
   You draw us all closer to Your love.                     
                                                           
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 (Easter Monday) of 9 Day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter
Today bring to Me                     
                                                         
            PAGANS AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME 
   
                                                                                                                   
(1216)      "Today bring to Me the pagans 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."
                                                           
(1217)  Most Compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of pagans 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.                             
                                                           
  May the light of Your love                               
  Enlighten the souls of darkness;                         
  Grant that these souls will know You                     
  And, together with us, praise Your mercy.                 
                                                           
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of pagans 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.                                               
                                                         

                                                   
Fifth Day (Tuesday of Easter Week) of 9 Day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...   
Today bring to me

        THE SOULS OF THE HERITICS AND SCHISMATICS                                                           
   
                                                         
(1218)      "Today bring to Me the souls of heretics and   schismatics, and immerse them in the ocean of 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. 
       
(1219)  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 heretics and schismatics.  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 adore the generosity of Your mercy.
                                                           
   Even for those who have torn the garment of Your unity, 
   A fount of mercy flows from Your Heart.                 
   The omnipotence of Your mercy, Oh God.                   
   Can lead these souls also out of error.   
 
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of  heretics and schismatics, 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 the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.  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 (Wednesday of Easter Week) of the 9 day Novena  for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...                                                   
Today bring to Me
                       
MEEK AND HUMBLE SOULS AND THE SOULS OF LITTLE CHILDREN 
       
                                                     
(1220)     "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 would keep vigil at My  altars.  I pour out upon them whole torrents of    grace.  Only the humble soul is able to receive My  grace.  I favor humble souls with My confidence."   
                                                           
(1221)    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 ecstacy, 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.             
                                                           
(1222)  A truly gentle and humble soul                     
        Already here on earth the air of paradise breathes,
        And in the fragrance of her humble heart           
        The Creator Himself delights.                       
                                                           
(1223)     Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon  meek and humble souls, and upon the souls of 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 (Thursday of Easter Week) of 9 day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...
   
Seventh Day                         
Today bring to Me                     
                                                           
       THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE AND GLORIFY MY MERCY   


                                                           
(1224)      "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."     

       
(1225)     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.  These souls are united to Jesus and 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.                                                       
                                                           
    A soul who praises the goodness of her Lord             
    Is especially loved by Him.                             
    She is always close to the living fountain             
    And draws graces from Mercy Divine.                     
                                                           
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 spirit, overflowing with joy, sings 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 the them, "I Myself will defend as My own glory, during their lifetime, and especially at the hour of their death, those souls who will venerate My fathomless mercy.   
 
                                                         
Eighth Day (Friday of Easter Week) of 9 Day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...         
Today bring to Me                     
                                                           
               THE SOULS WHO ARE IN PURGATORY 
             
                                                           
(1226)     "Today bring to Me the souls who are in the prison  of 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."                           
 
                                             
(1227) 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 the purifying fire, that in that place, too, the power of Your mercy may be praised.                                       
                                                           
   From the terrible heat of the cleansing fire             
   Rises a plaint to Your mercy,                           
   And they receive comfort, refreshment, relief           
   In the stream of mingled Blood and Water.               
                                                           
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 than through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion.                     


Ninth Day (Saturday of Easter Week) of 9 Day Novena for the Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter...     
Today bring to Me                       
                                                           
           THE SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM
             
                                                           
(1228)     "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 flee to My mercy."           
                                                           
(1229) 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.                                                     
                                                           
  Fire and ice cannot be joined;                           
  Either the fire dies, or the ice melts.                   
  But by Your mercy, O God,                                 
  You can make up for all that is lacking.                 
                                                           
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 friends,


Today is the first day of the Divine Mercy Novena.


Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday.  He gave St. Faustina 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, 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: (the items in colored font are hot links)


DAY 1 (Good Friday)  - All mankind, especially sinners


DAY  2 (Holy Saturday) - The souls of priests and religious


DAY 3 (Easter Sunday)  - All devout and faithful souls


DAY 4 (Easter Monday) - Those who do not believe in Jesus and those who do not yet know Him


DAY  5 (Easter Tuesday) - The souls of separated brethren


DAY  6 (Easter Wednesday) - The meek and humble souls and the souls of children


DAY  7 (Easter Thursday) - The souls who especially venerate and glorify Jesus' mercy


DAY  8 (Easter Friday) - The souls who are detained in purgatory; 


DAY  9 (Easter Saturday) - The souls who have become lukewarm.


The Chaplet of Divine Mercy may also be offered each day for the day's intention, but is not strictly necessary to the Novena.


Love & Prayers,


SuZ

I forgot to post the reminder on Good Friday.  This week is the divine Mercy Novena ending on Mercy Sunday, which is this Sunday.  You can catch up----there is no dimension of time in eternity.

Beginning today > The DIVINE MERCY Devotion > The Novena > DAY 1 (Good Friday)


... should you miss a day or two, remember the Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16).  On a personal note, novenas aren't my cup of tea, as I'm usually too ADD/scatter-brained to make nine days straight, but I will do my best ... (What more can I do?)


Hope everyone is having a fruitful Lent (that we may procure an ever-joyous Easter Season!)


God's blessings,


Thomas

Nine day Novena for the Feast of Mercy (The First Sunday  after Easter) begins on Good Friday---                                                              
796)    The Lord told me to say this chaplet for nine days before the Feast of Mercy. It is to begin on Good Friday.    
                                                            
   "By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls."                                                  
                                                            
(1059)   Jesus is commanding me to make a novena before the Feast of Mercy, and today I am to begin it for the  conversion of the whole world and for the recognition of  The Divine Mercy. "So that every soul will praise My  goodness.  I desire trust from My creatures.  Encourage  souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy.  Let the weak, sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even if  it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the  world, all  would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of  My mercy."                                                  
(1209)  Jesus, I trust in You.                              
                                                            
            Novena to the Divine Mercy                      
                                                            
which Jesus instructed me to write down and make before the Feast of Mercy.  It begins on Good Friday.  "I desire that  during these nine days you bring souls to the fount of My mercy, that they may draw there from strength and  refreshment and whatever graces they need in the hardships of life and, especially, at the hour of death."  "On each  day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I  will bring all these souls into the house of My Father. You will do this in this life and in the next.  I will deny nothing to any soul whom you will bring to the fount of My  mercy.  On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My bitter Passion, for graces for these souls."  I  answered, "Jesus, I do not know how to make the novena or  which souls to bring into Your Most Compassionate Heart."    
Jesus replied that He would tell me which souls to bring  each day into His Heart.                                    
                                                            
First Day  (Good Friday)                          
Today bring to me                        
                                                            
           ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS          
    
                                                            
(1210)      "Today, bring Me to 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."                    
                                                            
(1211) 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 the 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.                                        
                                                            
  Oh, omnipotence of Divine Mercy,                          
  Salvation of sinful people,                                
  You are the sea of mercy and compassion;                  
  You aid those who entreat You with humility.              
                                                            
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially 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 forever and ever.  Amen.

Second Day (Holy Saturday) of  9 day Novena for the  Feast of Mercy, the first Sunday after Easter: 
Today bring to Me                          
                                                            
         THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS    
              
                                                            
(1212)      "Today bring Me the souls of priests and religious,  and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy.  It was   they who gave Me the strength to endure My bitter Passion.  Through them, as through channels, My mercy flows out upon mankind."                      
                                                            
(1213) Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in us, that we may perform worthy works of mercy, and that all who see us may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.                            
                                                            
   The fountain of God's love                                
   Dwells in pure hearts.                                    
   Bathed in the Son of Mercy.                              
   Radiant as the stars, bright as the dawn.                
                                                            
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.
