Divine Mercy Novena

On Good Friday in 1937, Jesus dictated the intentions for a Novena that He wanted Saint Faustina to begin praying  9before the Feast of Mercy. By means of a special prayer, she was to bring to His Heart a different group of souls each day: “I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy.” (Diary, 1209)

Divine Mercy Novena First Day 

"Today bring to Me All Mankind, especially all sinners and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges me."

 

Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins, but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.
