TODAY’S MASS INTENTION: Bálint Petrancky, by Mary Spisak

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.

There are many ways to honor Divine Mercy, but one of them is to commemorate the Passion of Jesus at 3pm. In October 1937, in Krakow, Jesus drew Sister Faustina’s attention to the hour of the Lord Jesus’ death: “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; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — mercy triumphed over justice” (1572). The Lord Jesus provided quite precisely the form of prayer which best corresponds to this form in the devotion of the Divine Mercy: “My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that 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 Most Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant” (1572). Let us therefore strive not to forget this special hour.

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.
