Divine Mercy Novena begins Good FridayTHE DIVINE MERCY NOVENA begins Good Friday!
Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. He gave St. Faustina an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena, saving the last day for the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent of whom He said: "These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said, 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.' The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My mercy.” (Excerpt from St. Faustina’s Diary as summarized at www.ewtn.com/devotionals/mercy/novena.htm, where you’ll also find each day’s prayer intentions.)
Please join us at 2:30pm March 30 for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy & Stations of the Cross. The Divine Mercy Novena will conclude with a prayer service in the Church at 2:30pm April 8, Divine Mercy Sunday.
