THE DIVINE MERCY NOVENA

The Merciful Lord dictated to St. Faustina a novena that he asked her to pray before the Feast of Mercy beginning on Good Friday.  He instructed her in this way:

“I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fount of My mercy, that they may draw from there strength and refreshment and whatever grace they need in the hardships of life and, especially, at the hour of death. On each day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I will bring all these souls into the house of My Father On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My bitter Passion, for graces for these souls.” (Diary, 1209)

The intentions that Jesus assigned to the nine days are below.

 


 

We of Divine Mercy of the Rockies continue to focus on our three objectives: 1) Promote Jesus’ message of Divine Mercy; 2) Foster mercy in prayers, words, and deeds; and 3) Establish a Shrine and Center for Research and Education to serve the entire Rocky Mountain region.

We were excited earlier this year when the Sisters of the Merciful Jesus – the congregation Jesus told St. Faustina He wanted to be established – accepted Bishop Sheridan’s invitation to found a convent within the Diocese of Colorado Springs. They will beautifully model mercy in prayers, words, and deeds. In anticipation of their arrival, we are actively seeking employment for the Sisters and a suitable location for their convent.

Our most challenging objective will be establishing the Divine Mercy of the Rockies Shrine and Center for Research and Education which we intend to be run by the Sisters.

In the meantime, we are developing a targeted direct-mail campaign to educate and raise awareness of Divine Mercy; exploring the placement of large Divine Mercy roadside signs along high-traffic highways; increasing Home Enthronements of Jesus, the Divine Mercy, as King of Home and Family; promoting and establishing new Divine Mercy Cenacles and prayer groups; translating our website and selected materials into Spanish; and planning our next Pilgrimage to Lithuania and Poland, where we will walk in the footsteps of St. Faustina and Bl. Fr. Sopocko.

While we daily pray that Jesus will guide us in our efforts to more widely promote His message of Divine Mercy, we know He will accomplish this important work primarily through those like you, who share our devotion to Him.

So, we ask you to consider, at this crucial time, making a generous, tax-deductible donation to Divine Mercy of the Rockies. If you can make it a monthly gift, that would help us immensely!
