The Divine Mercy Novena begins TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2 with 6:00 pm Mass followed by the sung Chaplet and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and continues for nine Tuesdays in preparation for the Feast of Divine Mercy.
St. Faustina Kowalska, a simple Polish nun who in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. The message is nothing new for Catholics, but is a reminder of what the Church has always taught through Scripture and Tradition: that God is merciful and forgiving and that we too must show mercy and forgiveness. In the Divine Mercy devotion, the message takes on a powerful new focus, calling people to a deeper understanding that God’s love is unlimited and available to everyone – especially the greatest of sinners.
The message of Divine Mercy is that God loves us – all of us – no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others, sharing His joy. The devotional practices revealed through St. Faustina were given to us as “vessels of mercy” through which God’s love can be poured out upon the whole world.

Cor ad Cor Loquitur – Heart speaks to heart. The Heart of Christ speaks to the heart of man – to your heart – if you will open the door and listen to Him.
