A gentle reminder to our parishioners who would like to take part in the Divine Mercy Novena:
Friday, June 8th begins the first day of the Novena which will conclude on Saturday, June 16th.
Divine Mercy Chaplet will be recited for the End to the Culture of Death, on Sunday, June 17, 3:00pm
in the Church.
What is the Divine Mercy Novena, how and why do I pray it?
While the Chaplet can be said anytime, the Lord specifically asked that it be recited as a Novena, promising that “By this Novena (of Chaplets), I will grant every possible grace to souls” (Diary 796).
For each of the nine days of the Divine Mercy Novena, our Lord gave Saint Faustina a different intention:
Day 1 - All mankind, especially sinners.
Day 2 - The souls of priests and religious.
Day 3 - All devout and faithful souls.
Day 4 - Those who do not believe in God and those who do not yet know Jesus.
Day 5 - The souls who have separated themselves from the Church.
Day 6 - The meek and humble souls and the souls of little children.
Day 7 - The souls who especially venerate and glorify His mercy.
Day 8 - The souls detained in purgatory.
Day 9 - The souls who have become lukewarm.
"I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy, that they may draw there
from strength and refreshment and whatever grace they have need of in the hardships of life, and especially at the hour of death" (Diary, 1209).
Copies of the Divine Mercy Novena can be found on the Welcome Table.
Indulgences are not given during this Novena. Indulgences are only given for the Divine Mercy Sunday Novena and Chaplet.
