About the Divine Mercy Devotion
In 1931, Jesus appeared to a Polish nun called St Faustina. In her words, she saw: "... the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand [was] raised in the gesture of blessing, the other was touching the garment at the breast. From beneath the garment, slightly drawn aside at the breast, there were emanating two large rays, one red, the other pale."
Jesus asked St Faustina to paint an image of Him exactly as she saw Him, with the words "Jesus, I trust in You" written underneath. As St Faustina's visions of Jesus continued, He requested that she start devotion to the Divine Mercy, in which we are asked to recall that God is merciful, that we should be merciful, and to completely trust in Jesus.
About this Novena
Of the requests that Jesus made, the most important was that a feast to the Divine Mercy be celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Pope St John Paul II instituted Divine Mercy Sunday in 2000.
Jesus asked that we prepare for Divine Mercy Sunday with a novena:
"I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy, that they may draw there from strength and refreshment and whatever grace they have need of in the hardships of life, and especially at the hour of death."
The novena to the Divine Mercy is nine days of prayer with a specific Intention for each day, followed by the Chaplet. The Chaplet can be said anytime, but the Lord specifically asked that it be recited as a novena. He promised:
"By this Novena (of Chaplets), I will grant every possible grace to souls."
