Jesus, I trust in you.

Today, Divine Mercy Sunday, we are called to avail ourselves of the enormous treasury of grace and forgiveness that Christ in his mercy provides mankind.

You expired, O Jesus, but the Source of Life gushed forth for souls and the Ocean of Mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

Eternal God, Your Mercy is endless, and Your treasury of compassion is inexhaustible. Look with kindness upon us and increase Your Mercy within us, so that, in difficult moments, we may not despair, nor become despondent, but may, with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Final Prayer of the Divine Mercy Novena

Dear Lord Jesus, I have specific requests that may only partially fill the infinite needs and desires that are in my heart. I ask that You answer me not only for those requests but also for a greater reliance on You to satisfy the needs and desires that You have given me.

Please grant the prayers of all those who prayed this novena with me. Bless them with Your love and make them holy.

May I seek You with a sincere heart knowing that it will profit me nothing if I gain the whole world yet lose my soul.

Help me to see Your good and gracious purpose in all my trials. Help me to see Your blessings in every day and help me to love You more. Amen.
