Praying Through Divorce – Divine Mercy Novena Day 9!

Image via Wikipedia Day 9 Intention: Souls who have become lukewarm. Today bring to Me the souls who have become lukewarm* and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy.  These souls wound My Heart most painfully.  My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls.  They were the reason I cried out: ‘Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.’  For them the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy. “Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself.  I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart.  In this fire of Your pure love let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame.  O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercie the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Hear of Jesus.  Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His…

Today bring to Me the souls who are detained in Purgatory and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy.  Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames.  All these souls are greatly loved by Me.  They are making retribution fo My justice.  It is in your power to bring them relief.  Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf.  Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice. “Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice.  May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.

Wow, day #7 already.  Only 2 days to go! Image via Wikipedia Day 7 Intention: The souls who especially venerate and glorify My mercy. Today bring to Me the souls who especially venerate and glorify My mercy and immerse them in My mercy.  These souls sorrowed most over My passion and entered most deeply into My spirit.  They are living images of My Compassionate Heart.  These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life.  Not one of them will go into the fire of hell.  I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death. “Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy.  These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself.  in the midst of all afflictions and adverstities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders.  These souls will not be judges severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Praying Through Divorce – Divine Mercy Novena Day 6

Image by amrufm via Flickr Today is the 6th day of the Divine Mercy Novena.    Many amazing promises are attached to this novena. I encourage you to go to a Catholic bookstore to pick up a Divine Mercy pamphlet that tells you the story behind it, too, so you can keep the prayers with you and not be tied to the computer while reciting them. Day 6 Intention: The meek and humble souls and the souls of little children Today bring to Me the meek and humble souls and the souls of little children and immerse them in My mercy.  These souls most closely resemble My Heart.  They strengthened Me during My bitter agony.  I saw them as earthly Angels, who will keep vigil at My altars.  I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace.  Only the humble soul is capable of receiving My grace.  I favor humble souls with My confidence. “Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, ‘Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart.’ Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children.  These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and…
