Divine Mercy Novena | Day 7

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

Today is the seventh day of the Divine Mercy Novena. We pray that these Divine Mercy prayers will strengthen us as we celebrate the Octave of Easter. 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

Seventh Day of the Divine Mercy Novena

Intention: "Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE AND GLORIFY MY MERCY, and immerse them in My mercy. These souls sorrowed most over my Passion and entered most deeply into My spirit. They are living images of My Compassionate Heart. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell. I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death."

Novena Prayers: Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O God:

Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory.

Amen.

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
