God has promised special grace, especially to you and to all those… who will proclaim My great mercy. I shall protect them Myself at the hour of death, as My own glory. And even if the sins of souls were as dark as night, when the sinner turns to My mercy, he gives me the greatest praise and is the glory of My Passion. When a soul extols My goodness, Satan trembles before it and flees to the very bottom of Hell. (Diary, 378)
Parishes around the Diocese of Colorado Springs, indeed throughout the world, are establishing Divine Mercy Cenacles, named after the Upper Room were Mary and the Apostles joined in prayer after Jesus’ Crucifixion.
A Divine Mercy Cenacle is a group of faithful people who meet on a regular basis for prayer, devotion, song, and reflection. They read and discuss Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of St. Maria Faustina. Cenacle members also perform works of mercy which include offering prayers and assistance at home and at places of work and participating in parish and community service projects.
Cenacles are a wonderful opportunity to grow in faith and trust in the Lord; help save souls by praying for the conversion of sinners and for the sick and dying; and share the Divine Mercy message with a world that desperately needs it.
Please consider joining one of our existing Cenacles (see below). If none of them will work for you, think about starting a Cenacle in your own parish. It is an easy and rewarding ministry, and we can help you every step of the way. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy. (Diary, 300)
