JESUS’ PROMISE TO THOSE WHO RECITE THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET PRAYER
Summary vid + full text.
As we approach the Divine Mercy Sunday, the 2nd Sunday after Easter, let us recall what our Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself promised to those who recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet prayer which He recommended to us through St. Faustina.
On one occasion, Our Lord said to St. Faustina Kowalska:
“SAY UNCEASINGLY THE CHAPLET THAT I HAVE TAUGHT YOU. WHOEVER WILL RECITE IT 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. I DESIRE THAT THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW MY INFINITE MERCY. I DESIRE TO GRANT UNIMAGINABLE GRACES TO THOSE SOULS WHO TRUST IN MY MERCY. (Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska, “Diary of Divine Mercy in My Soul”., n. 687).
On another occasion, Our Lord told St. Faustina:
“When I entered my solitude, I heard these words: ‘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, UNFATHOMABLE MERCY ENVELOPS THE SOUL, AND THE VERY DEPTHS OF MY TENDER MERCY ARE MOVED FOR THE SAKE OF THE SORROWFUL PASSION OF MY SON. (Ibid., n. 811).”
