The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.
A novena is typically nine days of prayer in preparation of a celebration of a feast day. At the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy Novena is recited perpetually at the Hour of Great Mercy — the three o'clock hour.
The Chaplet can be said anytime, but the Lord specifically asked that it be recited as a novena. He promised, "By this Novena (of Chaplets), I will grant every possible grace to souls."
Plenary indulgence removes all temporal punishment due to our sins. It can be for yourself or for a person that has already died; cannot be for another living person. To gain a plenary indulgence a person must be in a state of grace, pray the Divine Mercy 9 day Novena, go to confession, receive the Eucharist & pray for the pope.
All Parishioners are invited to begin praying the Divine Mercy Novena on Good Friday, April 14 and end on Divine Mercy Weekend, April 22/23. Novena pamphlets may be found at all church entrances or on FAITH Page.
Go to www.thedivinemercy.org for complete novena online.
