Tonight we conclude our Divine Mercy Novena for Theodore Shulman and those affected by his actions. We do so on the Feast of Saint Gerard Majella, my patron saint, who is the Patron Saint of Expectant Mothers. It was through Gerard’s powerful intercession that I was born, and for him that I was named. We invoke Gerard’s mighty intercession tonight, on this last day of the Divine Mercy Novena, for Theodore’s conversion
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all who have participated in this spiritual exercise of compassion and mercy. God Bless you all.

Today bring to Me SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM,* and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: ‘Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.’ For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy.
On this final day of the Novena for Theodore Shulman, let us pray for him and those who have failed him in charity. Let us pray for those in the pro-life movement who may be indifferent to his suffering. Finally, let us pray for all of those lukewarm souls who know neither the fire of love for God, nor the icy cold of rebellion, but who are merely lukewarm and indifferent.
Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.
