DIVINE MERCY MINISTRY

Coordinator: Barbara Kingsley

The words below were given to St. Faustina by Our Lord Jesus Christ:

The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is – trust.  The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.  Souls that trust boundlessly are a great comfort to Me, because I pour all the treasures of My graces into them. 

I rejoice that they ask for much, because it is My desire to give much, very much.  On the other hand, I am sad when souls ask for little, when they narrow their hearts.”  (Diary, 1578)

Our Divine Mercy mission  is to spread the message of and devotion to the Divine Mercy as revealed to St. Faustina Kowalska by Our Lord Jesus Christ.  We seek to fulfill this mission by calling upon Him with trust, receiving His mercy and letting it flow through us to others, becoming vessels of Jesus’ mercy.

Opening Prayer:  You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.  O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Say the “Our Father”

Say the “Hail Mary”

Say the “Apostle’s Creed”:

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; on the third day he rose again
from the dead; he ascended into heaven and is
seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will 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
.

Creo en Dios, Padre todopoderoso, creador del Cielo

Nuestro Señor, que fué concebido por obra y gracia
del Espíritu Santo; nació de Santa María Virgen;
padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato; fué
crucificado, muerto y sepultado; descendió a los
infiernos; al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos;
subió a los cielos y está a la derecha de Dios Padre;
desde allí ha de venir a juzgar a los vivos y a los muertos.
Creo en el Espíritu Santo, en la Santa Iglesia Católica,
la comunión de los Santos en el perdón de los pecados
la resurrección de los muertos y la vida eterna.
Amén.
