Jesus further asked that this Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena of Chaplets to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. Say one chaplet each day following the novena intention. In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:
“On each day of the novena you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy… On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls. By this novena I will grant every possible grace to souls.” (Diary 1209, 796)
The Promise. According to St. Faustina, Our Lord promises to those who go to confession and communion on this day, the remission of the guilt and the punishment of sins.
On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. (Diary of Sr. Faustina, 699)
My dearly beloved daughter, the time is almost here for the world to reflect on My death on the Cross.
This is the time, during 2012, that I urgently need your prayers for those who will not recognise Me and for those who do not know about Me.
It will be up to you, My beloved followers, to help Me save those poor souls, whom I need to bring close to My Bosom, so that I can prepare them for My New Paradise.
Children, I need you to say My Divine Mercy Chaplet and commence the nine day Novena of the Divine Mercy, from Good Friday.
It is important that as many of you complete this Novena for other souls. You will receive great Graces and for this I will never forsake you. I will salvage your soul when you come before Me on the Day of Judgment. Continue reading
