Divine Mercy Devotion
The Divine Mercy Devotion is for those who acknowledge and repent of their sinfulness and seek God's infinite Mercy. It offers us comfort, protection, support and a new start in life. There are many aspects to this Devotion including, the Image, the Chaplet, the Hour of Mercy, the Feast and the Novena of Divine Mercy.
I promise that the soul that will venerate this image 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 48)
I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the signature "Jesus, I trust in You." (Diary 327)
The two rays denote Blood and Water. the pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous_ _ _These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him. (Diary 299)
Whoever will pray this Chaplet will receive great Mercy at the hour of death.
If this Chaplet is prayed in the presence of the dying I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the Just Judge but as the Merciful Saviour (Diary 1541)
Priests will recommend this Chaplet to sinners as the last hope of salvation. Even the most hardened sinner if he were to recite this Chaplet but once he would receive grace from My infinite Mercy (Diary 687)
I desire to grant unimaginable graces to the souls that will trust in My Mercy (Diary 687)
Encourage all souls to say this Chaplet which I have given you (Diary 1541)
When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give them the grace of conversion. This is the prayer: "O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You." (Diary 186-187)
As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it, invoke it's omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking. (Diary 1572)
I want to grant complete pardon to the souls that will go to confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My Mercy (Diary 1109)
(The Feast of Divine Mercy is on the first Sunday after Easter, therefore the obligation to go to confession does not have to be fulfilled on that specific day, but reasonably close to it. Saint Faustina herself attended confession the day before.)
