Day 1 - The Divine Mercy Novena

Saturday, March 31, 2018

These novena prayers are from St. Maria Faustina's diary where she wrote about her encounters with Jesus.

He specifically asked her to create a novena of Chaplets to be said leading up to Divine Mercy Sunday, beginning on Good Friday.

She wrote that Jesus said to her, "By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls."

Jesus gave St. Faustina an intention for each day of the novena. Each intention is that we would pray for a different group of souls each day, asking for God's mercy for them.

The words at the beginning of each day's prayer, in quotes, is what Saint Faustina says that Jesus asked us to pray for.

Here are the prayers for today:

Day 1 - The Divine Mercy Novena
(Audio/Video Version)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

"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.

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
