Monday's Mercy Minutes...

Divine Mercy Daily

My Own Glory 

 

Meditation:

But God has promised a great grace especially to you [Father Sopocko] and to all those ... who will proclaim My great mercy. I shall protect them Myself at the hour of death, as My own glory. And even if the sins of souls were as dark as night, when the sinner turns to My mercy, he gives Me the greatest praise and is the glory of My Passion. When a soul extols My goodness, Satan trembles before it and flees to the very bottom of hell (Diary, 378). 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, I claim Your promise for myself and for all apostles of Divine Mercy: May we be protected as Your own glory at the hour of death, and may Satan tremble and flee to the very bottom of hell.

Sunday's Divine Mercy Minutes...

I'm sorry I didn't get these posted earlier today, but here they are now.

My Greatest Attribute

 

Meditation:

Proclaim that mercy is the greatest attribute of God. All the works of My hands are crowned with mercy (Diary, 301).
Everything that you say about My goodness is true; language has no adequate expression to extol My goodness (Diary, 359). 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, help me to express and articulate clearly Your goodness. How can I speak of Your greatest attribute of mercy without Your grace? Fill me then, so I can proclaim Your mercy.

My Inconceivable Mercy 

 

Meditation:

Jesus said to me with kindness, My daughter, speak to priests about this inconceivable mercy of Mine. The flames of mercy are burning Me — clamoring to be spent; I want to keep pouring them out upon souls; souls just don’t want to believe in My goodness (Diary, 177). 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, give priests a special grace to hear the word of Your inconceivable mercy and to proclaim it to people in need. May distrustful souls come to believe in Your goodness as they hear it proclaimed.

Friday's Mercy Minutes just for you...

Divine Mercy Daily

Peace to the Tormented Soul 

 

Meditation:

Today, the Lord came to me and said, My daughter, help Me to save souls. You will go to a dying sinner, and you will continue to recite the chaplet, and in this way you will obtain for him trust in My mercy, for he is already in despair (Diary, 1797).
Suddenly, I found myself in a strange cottage where an elderly man was dying amidst great torments. All about the bed was a multitude of demons and the family, who were crying. When I began to pray, the spirits of darkness fled, with hissing and threats directed at me. The soul became calm and, filled with trust, rested in the Lord.
At the same moment, I found myself again in my own room. How this happens ... I do not know (Diary, 1798). 

My Prayer Response:

Thank You, Jesus, for the gift of trust for the dying as we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. You dispel a multitude of demons and bring peace to the tormented soul.

In a Great Storm 

 

Meditation:

Today I was awakened by a great storm. The wind was raging, and it was raining in torrents, thunderbolts striking again and again. I began to pray that the storm would do no harm, when I heard the words: Say the chaplet I have taught you, and the storm will cease. I began immediately to say the chaplet and hadn’t even finished it when the storm suddenly ceased, and I heard the words: Through the chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will(Diary, 1731). 

My Prayer Response:

Thank You, Jesus, for teaching us to use the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for a variety of needs. What amazing promises You have made about our praying it.

Today's Mercy Minutes

The Powers of Darkness Flee

 

Meditation:

When I entered the chapel for a moment, the Lord said to me,My daughter, help Me to save a certain dying sinner. Say the chaplet that I have taught you for him. When I began to say the chaplet, I saw the man dying in the midst of terrible torment and struggle. His Guardian Angel was defending him, but he was, as it were, powerless against the enormity of the soul’s misery. A multitude of devils was waiting for the soul. But while I was saying the chaplet, I saw Jesus just as He is depicted in the image. The rays which issued from Jesus’ Heart enveloped the sick man, and the powers of darkness fled in panic. The sick man peacefully breathed his last. When I came to myself, I understood how very important the chaplet was for the dying. It appeases the anger of God (Diary, 1565). 

My Prayer Response:

Lord, thank You for the power of The Divine Mercy Chaplet for the dying, especially to defend them against the powers of darkness. When I am dying, Lord, defend me against the Evil One.

Encourage Souls to Say the Chaplet

 

Meditation:

My daughter, encourage souls to say the chaplet which I have given to you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one.
Write that when they say this chaplet 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 Savior (Diary, 1541). 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, help me not only to please You by pray- ing the Chaplet of Divine Mercy but also help me to encourage others to pray it. May many more souls avail themselves of this powerful intercessory prayer, especially in praying for the dying.
