Feast of Mercy
John Paul II said at the canonisation of St. Faustina, "by this act today, I pass on the message of Divine Mercy to the new millennium. I pass it on because I want people to know the better face of God, and that of His Divine Mercy, and through it, the better face of their brethren. The light of the message of Divine Mercy which the Lord wished to renew in the world, will be as much a beacon of hope for the third millennium, as the apostles were in the first". He said that in future this Sunday would be known throughout the world as Divine Mercy Sunday, and that priests and the laity should avail of it, in this time of special grace. Read more...
Chaplet of Divine Mercy
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a truly special and holy prayer because it was created by Jesus for mankind. He revealed the Chaplet of Divine Mercy to a Polish nun called St. Faustina through a series of visions and inner locutions in 1935, while she was living in Vilnius, Lithuania. Between 1935-1938, Jesus demonstrated to her the unlimited power of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy through a number of extraordinary miracles and events. Read More...
Divine Mercy Novena
The Novena to Divine Mercy is a truly unique novena for a number of reasons. This novena is different from all other novenas because it is the first novena in the history of the Catholic Church which was created by Jesus. St. Faustina records in her Diary that Jesus instructed her to write down the Novena which she would begin on Good Friday, 1937. Jesus told her that on each day, she would bring a different group of souls to the Fountain of His Mercy.Read more...
Image of Divine Mercy
The Image of Divine Mercy is the painting of a vision of Jesus which St. Faustina saw on 22nd February 1931 while she was living in her monastery in Plock, Poland. Jesus specifically instructed her to have the vision painted and asked that the painting would have the words, “Jesus, I Trust in You” inscribed clearly on the painting. He explained that the Image would be the Image for His new feast celebrating His Divine Mercy which He wished to establish in the Catholic Church, through His revelations to St. Faustina.Read more...
Diary of St. Faustina
The Diary of St. Faustina is the second most important book in the world, after the Bible. It is a record of the inspiring life of St. Faustina, as she experienced the profound supernatural events that shaped her entire life. It reveals the supremely holy and wise personality of the author, not so much in what she said about herself, but in her honest reaction to the ordinary and divine moments of her everyday life. But the true purpose of the Diary was to document the instructions of Jesus as to how He desired the new devotion to His Divine Mercy to be formed. It is this point that makes it the second most important book in the world, because it contains the actual words of Jesus spoken to St. Faustina regarding His Mercy and the new devotion to His Divine Mercy, which He willed to be established in His Church.Read more...
3 O'Clock Prayer
I was asked by a mother to pray for a daughter, that she felt was in danger of losing her soul. It poses the question how good are our prayers, the prayers of simple sinners, in these situations. For the answer, all we have to do is look in the Diary of Saint Faustina, to see how powerful the Lord has made our intercessory prayer. Jesus said, “If you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith, (which is of course belief and trust) on behalf of some sinner I will give that soul the grace of conversion”. The prayer Jesus gave us to invite Him into the life of another, is a prayer that shows our belief and our trust in His death on the cross to bring Divine Mercy to all mankind especially sinners. “O Blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You”. (Diary 186, 187)Read more...
The most difficult virtue but the most noble of mankind is Trust. It is also the most important and respected virtue a person can have in life; trust in one’s neighbours, relatives, and friends. Nearly always, without exception you will find this trust is reciprocated. Trust is what makes us real Christians in a world that is suspicious of everyone and everything, a world that now seems to be engaged in an endless cycle of self-indulgence and mistrust.Read more...
