We continue our Divine Mercy Novena today, led by Deacon Marcelino Hernandez of the Archdiocese of Chicago who has written the daily focal points and has sent them along to be posted here. The link to the Divine Mercy Chaplet follows the prayer.
We Pray now under Deacon Hernandez’ leadership:
✞ ✞ ✞
Today bring to Me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.
Let us pray for Fr Euteneuer, and all who minister, that they lead souls to a closer relationship with Christ, even through their human weakness. That we who are affected by this may again find the full strength of devout and faithful service in mercy and charity to all we serve.
Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
