Mercy Minutes with Jesus (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

April 14 ~ A Prayer for the Dying

Theme:  The Chaplet of Mercy

“The Lord said to me today: ‘Go to the Superior and tell her that I want all the sisters and wards to say the chaplet which I have taught you. They are to say it for nine days in the chapel in order to appease My Father and to entreat God’s mercy for Poland.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 714)

“The following afternoon, when I entered the ward, I saw someone dying, and learned that the agony had started during the night. When I verified it – it had been at the time when I had been asked for prayer. And just then, I heard a voice in my soul: ‘Say the chaplet which I taught you.’

“I ran to fetch my rosary and knelt down by the dying person and, with all the ardor of my soul, I began to say the chaplet. Suddenly the dying person opened her eyes and looked at me; I had not managed to finish the entire chaplet when she died, with extraordinary peace.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 810)

My prayer response:

Thank You, Jesus, for this powerful prayer for the dying. May we be given the grace to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the sick and the dying in our lives, so that they may also be filled with Your peace. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
