Day Five Novena to the Divine Mercy

Today bring to Me the Souls of those who have separated themselves from My Church*,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion."

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Ooooops! Where is day five of the novena?

Day five IS coming. I promise. Just going to be a little late due to illness still making its rounds in the family. The weather outside today looks much like we all feel inside. cloudy and chilly. More like Good Friday than Easter Tuesday weather.

Check back soon - the fifth reading WILL be here. If baby Cecilia sleeps long enough I might be able to get the rest ready to be scheduled to pop up the rest of the week. Cross your fingers and PRAY! Sleep little Cici sleep!
