Divine Mercy Novena

The Divine Mercy Novena of Chaplets
A novena is typically nine days of prayer in preparation for a feast day celebration.
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."

INTENTIONS:  For each of the nine days, our Lord gave Saint Faustina a different intention.
Day One:  All mankind, especially sinners
Today, bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.  In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.     (Diary, 1210)
Day Two:  The souls of priests and religious
Today, bring to me the souls of priests and religious and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy.  It was they who gave Me the strength to endure My bitter Passion.  Through them, as through channels, My mercy flows out upon mankind.     (Diary, 1212)
Day Three:  All devout and faithful souls
Today bring to Me all devout and faithful souls and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.  These souls brought Me consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness.     (Diary, 1214)
Day Four:  Those who do not believe in God and those who do not yet know Jesus
Today bring to Me the pagans and those who do not yet know Me.  I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My Heart.  Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.     (Diary, 1216)
Day Five:  The souls who have separated themselves from the Church
Today bring to Me the souls of those who have separated themselves from My Church and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.  During My bitter Passion they tore at my Body and Heart; that is My Church.  As they return to unity with the Church, My wounds heal, and in this way they alleviate My Passion.    (Diary, 1218)
Day Six:  The meek and humble souls and the souls of little children
Today bring to Me the meek and humble souls and the souls of little children, and immerse them in My mercy.  These souls most closely resemble My Heart.  They strengthened Me during My bitter agony.  I saw them as earthly Angels, who would keep vigil at My altars.  I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace.  Only the humble soul is able to receive My graces.  I favor humble souls with My confidence.     (Diary, 1220)
Day Seven:  The souls who especially venerate and glorify His mercy
Today bring to Me the souls who especially venerate and glorify My mercy.  These souls sorrowed most over My Passion and entered most deeply into My Spirit.  They are living images of My Compassionate Heart.  These souls will shine with special brightness in the next life.  Not one of them will go into the fire of hell.  I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death.      (Diary, 1224)
Day Eight:  The souls detained in Purgatory
Today bring to Me the souls who are detained in Purgatory and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy.  Let the torrents of My blood cool down their scorching flames.  All these souls are greatly loved by Me.  They are making retribution to My justice.  It is in your power to bring them relief.  Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf.  Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice.     (Diary, 1226)
Day Nine:  Souls who have become lukewarm
Today bring to Me souls who have become lukewarm and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy.  These souls wound My Heart most painfully.  My Soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls.  They were the reason I cried out:  "Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will."  For them, the last hope of salvation is to flee to My mercy.    (Diary,  1228)
