Divine Mercy Sunday is right around the corner! To celebrate we created a beautiful little booklet that will make praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet even easier. This is an incredible prayer that Jesus Himself gave to us, and it is particular powerful to pray right now, as the Corona Virus sweeps across the globe, claiming many lives. We pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily for those that have died, and those facing death that day, especially those that will die alone. Jesus promised many blessings for those who say this prayer before they die.
If you are unfamiliar with the Divine Mercy, here is a very brief overview.
In short, Jesus appeared to St. Faustina and asked her to promote a devotion to His Divine Mercy. This devotion included the creation of an image of Christ with rays of life shooting forth from His heart. The red rays symbolize His blood and the Eucharist. The white rays symbolize the water that flowed from His side and the waters of baptism. He also asked that under His image the words, “Jesus, I trust in you” be written. This is the image that we have included on the front of the booklet. We have also included an image of St. Faustina on the back of the booklet.
Next, the Sunday after Easter, the final day in the octave of Easter, is Divine Mercy Sunday, a day when Jesus floods the world with His Mercy! Go to Mass, go to confession and it’s like a second baptism!
We also have a Divine Mercy hour every day at 3pm. This is a perfect time to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet–which is what we have included in our booklet.
Jesus also gave St. Faustina a prayer: The Divine Mercy Chaplet. The Divine Mercy Chaplet is said with a Rosary, but it is quicker to say than a Rosary! Inside of the booklet we have included a guide for saying this prayer. Everything you need to know is there.
And please don’t be intimated! The prayers repeat A LOT! Pray it once or twice and it will become easy.
Our intention is to introduce anyone and everyone to this wonderful prayer! And don’t be misled! Even though the prayers talk a lot of Jesus’s sorrowful passion and death, this is a joyful prayer! We are celebrating Jesus’s love and mercy by remembering what He did for us on the cross, and because of what He did, we confidently approach the throne of God and ask for mercy. God is so so good!
This amazing little booklet is free from all subscribers and you will find it in our digital library. I put it right at the top (there is tons of stuff in the library if you want to look around).
It is our hope that this pretty little booklet will not only introduce the Divine Mercy Chaplet to your family, but create in you the habit of saying this powerful prayer.
Jesus is here, and He is an ocean of mercy. Say this prayer each day and remind yourself about the incredible nature of God.
Have a beautiful Easter!
