Divine Mercy Sunday prayers

The Lord is full of mercy and compassion.
As we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, we rejoice in the Lord’s outpouring of forgiveness and healing. Through our baptism, we share in the death of Christ and were buried with Him. May we also come to share in His Resurrection.
Let us pray:
God of Infinite Mercy, you chose your humble servant St. Faustina to be the Apostle of Divine Mercy in our time.
Through her intercession may we come to trust in you and your unfathomable mercy more fully.
We place before You today our needs, the needs of our families, our churches, and of the whole world, and we ask you to look kindly upon them.
Help us grow ever stronger in our faith that we might put into practice works of mercy in our daily lives.
We make this prayer, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
An excerpt from the Diary of St. Faustina: (Diary, 699)
“On one occasion, I heard Jesus say these words to me:
‘My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy.
I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and a shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners.
On that day, the very depths of My tender mercy are open.
I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Font of My mercy.
The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete
forgiveness of sins and punishment.
On that day, all the divine floodgates, through which graces flow, are open.
Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet.
My mercy is so great that no mind, be it human or angelic, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity.
Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy.
Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity.’”
Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
