Novena to the Divine Mercy
Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy, which falls on the Sunday following Easter, be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy. This nine day Novena begins on Good Friday.
Jesus gave St. Faustina an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena. In her diary, St. Faustina wrote: "On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls."
