The Hour of Mercy





Christ has asked Sister Faustina to honor the hour of His death.


“I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking   mercy triumphed over justice. My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse there in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant. I claim veneration for My mercy from every creature, but above all from you, since it is to you that I have given the most profound understanding of this mystery.” (Diary 1572)


Christ presented to Sister Faustina several options to adore His Passion and Death on the Cross, including the Stations of the Cross, the supreme option. Place yourself in the same mind frame of the Galilean Women who accompanied Jesus to Calvary.


“There were many women there, looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him.”  (Matthew 27:55)


If your time is scarce, pray to Jesus: Lord, we adore and glorify Your Mercy in the Passion and Death for our sins.
