“Today, I have started a novena to the Divine Mercy. That is, I place myself in spirit before the Image and recite the Chaplet which the Lord has taught me.”
(Diary, entry 851)
Dear Saint Faustina, listen to the prayers of all those who join you in praying the novena in honour of the Merciful Lord, particularly in preparation for the great Feast of Mercy, celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Join your prayers with ours, before the Throne of Mercy so that, with you, we might extol the mercies of the Lord.
Merciful Lord, hear our petitions in honour of Your holy Passion and Death, offered through the Chaplet of Divine Mercy; place them all before the Eternal Father that He might see us in no other way than through the Wounds of Your holy Passion, and be merciful to us all.
Jesus, we TRUST in You!
