Prayer Time

I would like to start a Prayer Time in the Chapel, which would include the Rosary. (The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate on the mysteries of the life of Jesus and Mary.) The Chaplet of Divine Mercy and a very short Stations of the Cross, and the following prayer:

If you want to know God, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to love God, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to know the infinite, eternal love of God, look at the Crucifix.
If you wish to have a part in giving that same love to others, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to know who you are and your worth, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to know how you were saved from the jaws of hell, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to know how much God wants to save your immortal soul, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to know who will lead you to Heaven, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to live well, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to die well look at the Crucifix, look at the Crucifix.
If you want to live forever in Heaven with your Eternal Father, look at the Crucifix.

The following is about the importance of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

What are the promises to those who recite the chaplet of divine mercy?

Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy – Jesus. If the Lord is saying “It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet,” shouldn’t we take every opportunity to recite this prayer with intentions for our country, our neighbors, our world?

Our Lord also made several promises to those who pray his Divine Mercy Chaplet. How amazing!

Here’s 14 promises Jesus made to those who pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet:

1) “I promise that the soul that will venerate this image (of Divine Mercy) will not perish. I also promise victory over (its) enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 48)*

2) “The two rays denote Blood and Water…These two rays issued from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father…I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy…whoever approaches the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment. Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 299-300)*

3) “I desire that the Feast of Mercy…be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter…The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion (in a state of grace on this day) shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 699)*

4) “Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 687)*

5) “Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy…I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 687)*

6) “The souls that say this chaplet will be embraced by My mercy during their lifetime and especially at the hour of their death.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 754)*

7) “Souls who spread the honor of My mercy…at the hour of death I will not be a Judge for them, but the Merciful Savior.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1075)*

8) “The prayer most pleasing to Me is prayer for the conversion for sinners. Know, my daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1397)*

9) “My mercy is greater than your sins and those of the entire world.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1485)*

10) “To priests who proclaim and extol My mercy, I will give wondrous power; I will anoint their words and touch the hearts of those to whom they will speak.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1521)*

11) “Through this chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1731)*

12) “When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1541)*

13) “When they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as a just Judge but as a merciful Savior.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1541)*

14) “At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony…I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion.”

(Diary of St. Faustina, 1320)*

For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world!

*Footnote – Saint Faustina was Polish Nun in the early 1900’s. Jesus appeared multiply time. At the advise of here confessor, she recorded these Conversations and her feelings. Her Diary takes up 700 pages, which I have read.

Thank You for Considering The Prayer Time,
