FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: Today is the Divine Mercy Sunday when we recall the motivation of God for the great work of redemption – his Infinite Mercy. In the context of our fallen world we may say that everything that God does for us is an expression of His mercy, but it is especially profound in the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Below is the prayer through which we can express our gratitude to God and entrust ourselves to the Divine Mercy. God bless you all! Fr. Bona

Act of Entrustment to the Divine Mercy: O Most Merciful Jesus, Your goodness is infinite, and the treasures of Your grace inexhaustible. I trust boundlessly in Your mercy, which is above all Your works. I consecrate myself to You completely and unreservedly, so as to live and strive for Christian perfection. I want to spread Your mercy by performing works of mercy, both spiritual and corporal, laboring especially for the conversion of sinners, bringing consolation to those in need, to the sick and the suffering.  Guard me then, O Jesus, as Your own possession and Your own glory. Though I sometimes tremble with fear, aware of my weakness, at the same time I have boundless trust in Your mercy. Oh, that all people would come to know the infinite depths of Your mercy, while there is still time, so that they may place their trust in Your merciful love and glorify You forever. Amen.

CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY (using ordinary Rosary beads of five decades). Beginning: Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, The Apostles’ Creed. On the larger beads say once: Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade say: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Conclude praying three times: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. At the end make a Sign of the Cross.
