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).

 

THE CHAPLET TO THE DIVINE MERCY


The house of Congregation of Our Lady of Mercy where Saint Faustina
stayed in the years 1933-1936. In this house Lord Jesus dictated herthe Chaplet
to the Divine Mercy. Vilnius (Lithuania), 29 Grybo St.


VILNIUS, Lithuania "September 13, 1935.
In the evening, when I was in my cell, I saw an Angel, the executor of divine wrath.
He was clothed in a dazzling robe, his face gloriously bright, a cloud beneath his feet. From the cloud, bolts of thunder and flashes of lightning were springing into his hands; and from his hand they were going forth, and only then were they striking the earth. When I saw this sign of divine wrath which was about to strike the earth, and in particular a certain place, which for good reasons I cannot name, I began to implore the Angel to hold off for a few moments, and the world would do penance. But my plea was a mere nothing in the face of the divine anger.
(...) At that very moment I felt in my soul the power of Jesus’ grace, which dwells
in my soul. When I became conscious of this grace, I was instantly snatched up before the Throne of God.
(...) I found myself pleading with God for the world with words heard interiorly.
As I was praying in this manner, I saw the Angel’s helplessness: he could not carry out the just punishment which was rightly due fors sins. Never before had I prayed with such inner power as I did then. The words with which I entreated God are these: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. The next morning, when I entered chapel, I heard these words interiorly: Every time you enter the chapel, immediately recite the prayer which I taught you yesterday.
When I had said the prayer, in my soul I heard these words:
This prayer will serve to appease My wrath. You will recite it for nine days, on the beads of the rosary, in the following manner:
First of all, you will say one OUR FATHER and HAIL MARY and the I BELIEVE IN GOD. Then on the OUR FATHER beads you will say the following words: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. On the HAIL MARY beads you will say the following words: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
In conclusion, three times you will recite these words: Holy God, Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world" (Diary, 474-476).


"Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet (...) Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy.
It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them" (Diary, 848).


"Say unceasingly the chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will recite it, they will receive great mercy at the hour of death.
Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy" (Diary, 687).

 

THE PROMISE OF THE GRACE OF MERCY FOR THE DYING


"It pleases Me to grant everything souls 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 this for the benefit of distressed souls; when a soul sees and realizes the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery into which it immersed itself is displayed before its eyes, let it not despair, but with trust let it throw itself into the arms of My mercy, as a child into the arms of its beloved mother (...). Tell them no soul that has called upon My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul that has placed its trust in My goodness. 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).


"At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the indulgence is the same. When this chaplet is said by the bedside of a dying person, God's anger is placated and his unfathomable mercy envelops the soul" (Diary, 811).


To be said on the beads of a rosary.
"At first: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I Believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell, the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

On the large beads (once): Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
On the small beads (10 times): For the sake of His sorrowful Passion
have mercy on us and on the whole world.
At the end (3 times): Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us and on the whole world" (Diary, 476).


Lord Jesus to said of Saint Faustina:
"I desire that this mercy flow out upon the whole world through your heart. Let no one who approaches you go away without that trust in My mercy, which I so ardently desire for souls. Pray as much as you can for the dying. By your entreaties, obtain for them trust in My mercy, because they have most need of trust, and have it the least" (Diary, 1777).


"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 (...). But while I was saying the chaplet, I saw Jesus just as He is depicted in the image. The rays that issued from Jesus’ Heart enveloped the sick man, and the powers of darkness fled in panic. The sick man peacefully breathed his last" (Diary, 1565).


"Contact with the dying. They ask me for prayer, and I can pray, as the Lord grants me an extraordinary spirit of prayer. I am constantly united with Him, and I am fully aware that I live for souls in order to bring them to Your mercy, O Lord. In this matter, no sacrifice is too insignificant" (Diary, 971).


"I often communicate with persons who are dying and obtain the divine mercy for them. Oh, how great is the goodness of God, greater than we can understand. There are moments and there are mysteries of the divine mercy over which the heavens are astounded. Let our judgment of souls cease, for God’s mercy upon them is extraordinary" (Diary, 1684).


"God’s mercy sometimes touches the sinner at the last moment in a wondrous and mysterious way. Outwardly, it seems as if everything were lost, but it is not so. The soul, illumined by a ray of God’s powerful final grace, turns to God in the last moment with such a power of love that, in an instant, it receives from God absolution of sins and remission of punishment, while outwardly it shows no sign either of repentance or of contrition, because souls [at that stage] no longer react to external things. Oh, how beyond comprehension is God’s mercy! But - horror! - There are also souls who voluntarily and consciously reject and scorn this grace! Although a person is at the point of death, the merciful God gives the soul that interior vivid moment, so that if the soul is willing, it has the possibility of returning to God. But sometimes, the obduracy in souls is so great that consciously they choose hell; they [thus] make useless all the prayers that other souls offer to God for them and even the efforts of God Himself..." (Diary, 1698).


"Oh, how much we should pray for the dying! Let us take advantage of mercy while there is still time for mercy" (Diary, 1035).


"O life so dull and monotonous, how many treasures you contain! When look at everything with the eyes of faith, no two hours are alike, and the dullness and monotony disappear. The grace which is given me in this hour will not be repeated in the next. It may be given me again, but it will not be the same grace. Time goes on, never to return again. Whatever is enclosed in it will never change; it seals with a seal for eternity" (Diary, 62).


"...The Lord gave me to know how much He desires a soul to distinguish itself be deeds of love. And in spirit I saw how many souls are calling out to us, "Give us God." And the blood of the Apostles boiled up within me. I will not be stingy with it; I will shed it all to the last drop for immortal souls. Although perhaps God will not demand that in the physical sense, in spirit it is possible and no less meritorious" (Diary, 1249).


"I desire to go throughout the whole word and speak to souls
about the great mercy of God. PRIESTS, HELP ME IN THIS..." (Diary, 491).


"Tell My priests that hardened sinners will repent on hearing their words when they speak about My unfathomable mercy, about the compassion I have for them in My Heart. To priests who proclaim and extol My mercy, I will give wondrous power; I will anoint their words and touch the hearts of those to whom they speak" (Diary, 1521).


"My daughter, look into the abyss of My mercy and give praise and glory to this mercy
of Mine. Do it in this way: Gather all sinners from the entire world and immerse them
in the abyss of My mercy" (Diary, 206).


"Penetrate My mysteries, and you will know the abyss of My mercy towards creatures and My unfathomable goodness - and this you shall make known to the world. Through your prayers, you shall mediate between heaven and earth" (Diary, 438).


"YOU WILL PREPARE THE WORLD FOR MY FINAL COMING" (DIARY, 429).

"My kingdom on earth
is My life in the human soul" (Diary, 1784).



Saint sister Faustina: "When I immersed myself in prayer and united myself with all the Masses that were being celebrated all over the world at that time, I implored God, for the sake of all these Holy Masses, to have mercy on the world and especially on poor sinners who were dying at that moment. At the same instant, I received an interior answer from God that a thousand souls had received grace through the prayerful mediation I had offered to God. We do not know the number of souls that is ours to save through our prayers and sacrifices; therefore, let us always pray for sinners" (Diary, 1783).


“I often accompany a person who is dying far away, but my greatest joy is when I see the promise of mercy fulfilled in these souls. The Lord is faithful; what He once ordains – He fulfills” (Diary, 935).


THE GIFT OF PRAYER

In the spiritual unity with Saint Sister Faustina, we would like to cordially invite worshippers of Divine Mercy to undertake an individual prayer or to participate in

THE PERPETUAL PRAYER WITH THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY
- for the grace of mercy for the dying.

A prayer can be offered by anyone who wishes to unite in a daily prayer with the Community of the Apostles of Merciful Jesus at the Congregation of the Sisters of Merciful Jesus. We believe, that this way we will fulfill the wish of Lord Jesus  and cause that the grace of salvation will be trustingly accepted by the dying in our families and all over the world.

A declaration of prayer should be sent to the Congregation of the Sisters of Merciful Jesus by the regular mail or by electronic mail, including personal information (name, address), date range of the prayer (from day to day) and the time of the prayer: e-mail: sopocko@faustyna.eu

"...but write this for the many souls who are often worried because they do not have the material means with which to carry out an act of mercy. Yet spiritual mercy, which requires neither permissions nor storehouses, is much more meritorious and is within the grasp of every soul. If a soul does not exercise mercy somehow or other, it will not obtain My mercy on the day of judgment" (Diary 1317). (see Virtue of Mercy - Fr. Sopocko)
