“The Lord told me to say this chaplet for nine days before the Feast of Mercy. It is to begin on Good Friday” (Diary, 796).
“I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy, that they may draw therefrom strength and refreshment and whatever grace 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” (1209).
Pray with Me
I’ll be praying the Divine Mercy Novena, and I want you to join me!
Has your heart ever been broken? Has your spirit ever been crushed?
We’ve all been there. We’ve all had an experience (or more than one) that caused us to feel emotional pain. An experience that made our hearts ache. An experience that made us feel like we were kicked in the stomach and had the wind knocked out of us.
Whether we’ve experienced the loss of a loved one; end of a romantic relationship; betrayal of a significant other, friend or family member; or something similar, we can probably remember how much it hurt.
When we go through painful situations, do we try to deal with them on our own or do we turn to the Lord for help? When we go through painful situations, do we believe God is somewhere off in the distance or right there with us?
