Divine Mercy Novena | Day 2

The Divine Mercy Image.
Jesus, I trust in you.

Today is the second day of the Divine Mercy Novena. We pray that these Divine Mercy prayers will strengthen us as we fast and do penance on Holy Saturday. We also pray that we will grow closer to our Lord's Passion through saying this Novena.

You may post your prayer intentions here.

The novena prayers are from St. Maria Faustina's diary in which she wrote about her encounters with Jesus.

Christ specifically asked her to create a novena of Chaplets to be said leading up to Divine Mercy Sunday, beginning on Good Friday.

She wrote that Jesus said to her, "By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls."

Jesus gave St. Faustina an intention for each day of the novena. Each intention is that we would pray for a different group of souls each day, asking for God's mercy for them.

Divine Mercy Novena Prayers

Second Day of the Divine Mercy Novena

Intention: "Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS, and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy. It was they who gave Me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as through channels My mercy flows out upon mankind."

Novena Prayers: Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service, that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard--upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end.

Amen.

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
