Divine Mercy Novena Day 7

Most of the priests I've ever met have changed my life for the better in one way or another. One of the priests I have gotten to know during my college years introduced me to the Divine Mercy chaplet. I had drifted towards it on and off through the years and am sure that I have had leaflets and cards given to me over the years. However, I never really prayed it more than once or twice. However, when he introduced me to it during confession...he made this devotion come alive for me. The next thing I know, I am looking it up online...downloading pdfs of Sr. Faustina's diary, buying Divine Mercy chaplet cards....and spreading this devotion. This devotion centers on Christ's mercy for us...regardless of how sinful or imperfect we are. It centers on second chances, redemption, and unconditional love that seeks to create saints out of sinners. Today we are called to pray for those who, like this priest, devote time and energy into glorifying God's mercy and saving as many souls as possible.

Day 7

Today bring to Me the Souls who especially venerate and glorify My Mercy, and immerse them in My mercy. These souls sorrowed most over my Passion and entered most deeply into My spirit. They are living images of My Compassionate Heart. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell. I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death.
Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O God:

Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory. Amen.

Pax Vobiscum
