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 THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD* AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME. I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My Heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.
Let us pray for those, who by this scandal, do not lose faith but seek a deeper understanding of mercy which only God can reveal. In their search for Truth may seek it all the more.
Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.
