Day 1 – 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.

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


Divine Mercy Chaplet

Step 1 – Using a regular set of Rosary beads, you begin at the cross by doing the sign of the cross.

(Optional Opening Prayer) You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

(Repeat three times) O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Step 2 – On the three beads of the rosary pray the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Apostles Creed.

Step 3 – You begin each decade with the Our Father beads by praying this prayer:

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.

Step 4 – Complete the decade on the 10 Hail Mary beads by praying this prayer:

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

Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each decade on the rosary beads

Step 5 – Once you have prayed all 5 decades, you finish the Chaplet by praying the following prayer 3 times:

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.

Amen.

Preparing A Place Of Refuge

As the year devoted to St. Joseph comes to an end, and as we prepare our hearts in preparedness for the birth of Jesus, many obstacles has popped up creating turmoil in my world, and in different parts of our globe. In my part of the world, my province has mandated many restrictions that will take place this coming Monday. One of which is our place of worship. Last year, all churches were shut down. Now, 10 days before Christmas, there will not only be a reduction of 50% of attendees, but those present must show their vaccine passport. All I can say is that as we head towards more restrictions in every aspect of our lives, I cannot express enough the importance of creating a place of refuge. What do I mean? I mean ensuring that we are prepared spiritually – in Jesus. To trust in Jesus, and know that we were meant to live in this time as His disciples. To continue to love as Christ did. To know that our faith in Jesus is our foundation. Fear not! The hand of God will provide for us. Creating a sacred place of refuge is a start. This can be our own home.

For me this means creating a space in my home for my family as a refuge from the sinful and crazy world outside – a home within which all four walls are filled with prayer (by keeping prayer alive daily and unceasingly). I have the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Crucifix hanging on my walls as a reminder of His sacrifice for our sins. It also means having objects or pictures of faith around that each member of the family can look upon and meditate on the Holy Family and God. It means creating a blessed space. Isn’t this extreme? Well the ever changing protocols, restrictions, and lost of freedom upon all of us demands deep faith in God to overcome the fears that Satan rains upon us.

As we head into difficult times in our changing world, I want to share with you the following prayer: The Rosary of Provision. “Anyone who prays this Rosary with faith and devotion will not lack the bread of every day. It is the promise of Jesus of Mercy.”

The rosary of provision (for times of scarcity and famine)

“O infinite Mercy of God, which you provide to men of good will, to those in need, to widows and orphans, covering their material and spiritual needs; Open the pantries of heaven and in the Name of the Father, (blessing) in the Name of the Son, (blessing) and in the name of the Holy Spirit, (blessing) send me the provision I need to accomplish my needs of this day (make request).
Creed and Our Father.”

5 Decades:

In the big beads say: I can have grace and mercy even in times of need. (Hebrews 4, 16)

In the small beads say: In the name of God One and Triune, Divine Mercy, provide for me. 10 times

(depending on your rosary beads) At the end of each dozen, pray:  1 Our Father and you start as in the beginning.

I can have grace and mercy…  and so on until the end of the five dozen.

At the end of the rosary, pray the Psalm 136

Psalm 136

    for his steadfast love endures forever.
