Divine Mercy, 2017

***Divine Mercy Novena –April 14-23, 2017

Begins on Good Friday!!!  It’s not too late; begin TODAY!

 

In 1935 Sister Faustina Kowalska received a vision of an angel sent by God to punish the world. She began to pray for mercy, but her prayers were powerless. Then she saw the Holy Trinity, and, filled with the power of Jesus' grace, found herself pleading with God for mercy with words she heard interiorly: “Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us.” As she continued saying this inspired prayer, the angel became helpless and could not carry out the ordained punishment.

Join us as we begin the 9-day Novena to the Divine Mercy today, Good Friday, through Mercy Sunday! Are you aware of all that has been promised?

Divine Mercy Sunday – April 23, 2017

Yes, in 1935 Sister Faustina did receive a vision of an Angel sent by God to punish the world. And yes, that Angel became helpless and could not carry out the ordained punishment as she implored the Eternal Father for His Divine Mercy.

What about non-Catholics and Mercy Sunday?...

 

In 1995 Our Lord spoke of His Mercy in His Lessons to the world:

"...My doors will remain open for all until the designated time when My Father closes them after He releases His angels to unseal the scrolls of judgment for the world. Now I continue to wait and accept even the least prayer for mercy." (JOM, Vol V, #22, 10-05-95, My Blessing of Peace, October 5th was subsequently designated the Feast Day of St. Faustina)

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said about God's Divine Mercy?

“God has a way of purging and removing the thorns of the flesh, so that the soothing balm of His Love can penetrate and be absorbed into the core of your soul. It is far better to endure this now, so that later you can be the Light for others, in order that they can have hope in God.” (OLOE Private 03-29-08)

“On this Feast of His Divine Mercy, in this place where Mercy rests, I your Mother am grateful, and I take your petitions. I give to you not only the indulgence from my Son, passed on to you through my most beloved Pope; but I give also to you a new beginning, a beginning that rests within the freedom, the graciousness and the wholeness of being a child of God…. This unveiling of my Son's Divine Mercy is to unfold sooner than you might think it should be. The best thing that you can do is not to contemplate the time, but to wear the garment of His Divine Mercy. Be prepared. Be aware and all-accepting of what will come, because it is sooner than what the world believes it to be.” (OLOE Private 05-30-05)

Pope Francis’ Apostolic at the end of the Year of Mercy  November 20, 2016

“…This is the time of mercy. Each day of our journey is marked by God’s presence. He guides our steps with the power of the grace that the Spirit pours into our hearts to make them capable of loving. It is the time of mercy for each and all, since no one can think that he or she is cut off from God’s closeness and the power of his tender love. It is the time of mercy because those who are weak and vulnerable, distant and alone, ought to feel the presence of brothers and sisters who can help them in their need. It is the time of mercy because the poor should feel that they are regarded with respect and concern by others who have overcome indifference and discovered what is essential in life. It is the time of mercy because no sinner can ever tire of asking forgiveness and all can feel the welcoming embrace of the Father….”

The Miracle of Eucharist

The Miracle Of The Eucharist

Novena Prayer
to
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine,
All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.

Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God!

O Virgin Immaculate, Mother of Jesus and our tender Mother, we invoke thee under the title of Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, because thou art the Mother of the Savior who lives in the Eucharist, and because it was from thee that He took the Flesh and Blood with which He there feeds us! We invoke thee under that title because, again, thou art the sovereign dispensatrix of all graces and, consequently, of those contained in the august Eucharist, also, because thou didst first fulfill the duties of the Eucharistic life, teaching us by thy example how to assist properly at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, how to communicate worthily, and how to visit frequently and piously the Most Blessed Sacrament.

V. Pray for us, O Virgin Immaculate,
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

R. That the Eucharistic Kingdom of Jesus Christ may come among us!

Let us pray:

Lord Jesus Christ, our King and our God, who having become Man to make us sharers in The Divinity, art truly our Bread in the adorable Eucharist, grant, we beseech Thee, that in venerating so great a Mystery, we may be mindful of the most sweet Virgin Mary, of whom Thou didst will to be conceived by the operation of the Holy Ghost! Grant, also that we may imitate the worship that she rendered while on earth to this most august Sacrament, so we may behold Thy Eucharistic Kingdom spread and flourish throughout the whole world! O Thou who lives and reigns forever and ever! Amen.
