God is Merciful

banner fr tino

In the 1930s, the Lord spoke to a young Polish nun, St. Faustina Kowalska about His Divine Mercy. St. Faustina started to spread the devotion to Divine Mercy. It is a reminder that God is merciful and forgiving to all of us.
The Lord has given to us, through St. Faustina, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy”

divine-mercy

(Repeat 3 times) O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
Our Father, Hail Mary and the Apostle’s Creed

For each of the five decades (On each “Our Father” bead of the rosary, pray)

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

(On each of the 10 “Hail Mary” beads, pray)

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding prayer (Repeat 3 times)

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Below are some of the messages from Jesus:

“Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet (…) Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them” (Diary, 848).

“Say unceasingly the chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will recite it, they 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” (Diary, 687).

“It pleases Me to grant everything souls ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one. Write this for the benefit of distressed souls; when a soul sees and realizes the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery into which it immersed itself is displayed before its eyes, let it not despair, but with trust let it throw itself into the arms of My mercy, as a child into the arms of its beloved mother (…). Tell them no soul that has called upon My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul that has placed its trust in My goodness. Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Savior” (Diary, 1541).

Devin will guide our audience by transmitting to them the biblical vision of fatherhood, its necessity, glory and irreplaceable effect on families and society. Among other things, Devin is also the founder of Fathers of St. Joseph, an apostolate that works for the renewal of authentic fatherhood. Joining Devin is Brian Gail, author of a remarkable novel Fatherless. This book has also become a powerful tool for catechesis. He is a highly sought after speaker on matters of faith and family.

New Scripture Program Starting Oct. 10

On Friday, October 10, 2014, a new program began on Radio Maria. Passion: The Word of God, hosted by Fr. John Murray, will be airing every other Friday, at 10:00 a.m. Central/11:00 a.m. Eastern. Father Murray comes to us from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, in Brooklyn, New York. He will take us through the Liturgical year with interesting Scriptural topics, dealing with them in a “Catholic” way. The sessions will be interesting, and even fun, because Father plans to have a live audience of young adults. After his talk, he will encourage questions from the group, then have them make the topic relevant to their age. Father Murray has a miraculous personal story of his own. In 2010, while walking on the boardwalk on the Jersey Shore, he fell, hit his head, and was instantly paralyzed from his chest down. He was told that he had no chance of “any voluntary movement.” By the grace of God, he is now walking with the help of a rollator, drives his own vehicle, and continues to preach Missions and retreats. We are proud to have Fr. John Murray onboard with our Radio Maria family.
The archives of the program can be found at http://radiomaria.us/passionthewordofgod/
