The Divine Mercy of Jesus
Index of Prayers To The Saints
In 1931, Jesus told St. Faustina to have a picture painted as he appeared to her. The rays represent the Blood and Water which came from the depths of His Mercy when, "My agonizing Heart was pierced on the cross. The pale rays symbolize the water, which cleanses and purifies the soul: the red rays represent the blood, which gives new life to the soul. These rays will shield the soul before the justice of My Father. Fortunate are those who live in this shelter, for the justice of God will not reach them there."
Jesus told her, "The greater the sinner, the greater the mercy. Summon all those to confidence in the great depth of My Mercy for I desire to save all. The well of Mercy was opened wide with a lance on the Cross, for all souls. I do not exclude anyone."
promise that the soul that will venerate this Image will not perish. I
further promise to that soul victory over enemies here on earth especially at
the hour of death. I Myself, shall defend that soul as My own glory..."
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
Jesus told St. Faustina, "Say unceasingly this chaplet. anyone who says it will receive great mercy at the hour of death. Priests will recommend it to sinners as a last hope. If the most hardened sinner recites this chaplet even once, they will receive grace from My infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to know my infinite mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in my Mercy."
"I desire the confidence of My people. Let not even the weak and very sinful fear to approach me: even if their sins be as numerous as all the sands of the earth, all will be forgiven in the fathomless pit of My mercy."
The Prayer (using the Rosary as a guide)
Our Father, who art in heaven hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I believe in God the Father Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, Our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into Hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.
