Tonight we conclude our Divine Mercy Novena for Father Thomas Euteneuer and those affected by his actions, 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.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Deacon Hernandez for his spiritual leadership and pastoral care, as well as thanking all who have participated in this spiritual exercise of compassion and mercy. God Bless you all.
The link to the Divine Mercy Chaplet follows the prayer.
We Pray now under Deacon Hernandez’ leadership:
✞ ✞ ✞
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 Fr. Euteneuer, let us pray for us to approach the love of Christ and His mission, in the same zeal and fervor Fr Euteneuer has shown in the past and pray that Fr. Euteneuer may again join the fight against evil and the salvation of souls in whatever capacity his superior sees fit. May he accept his duties in great humility and work towards the kingdom in the same light of Christ’s mercy.
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.
