Jesus told St. Faustina, “The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.” (Diary, 1578)

Recognizing our human weaknesses and sins, God is always ready to pour out His mercy upon us. Divine Mercy for America seeks to take full advantage of the gifts of grace and mercy available through devotion to The Divine Mercy and faith in His promises.

The Feast of Mercy

Saint Faustina recorded 14 revelations concerning our Lord’s desire that this feast formally be established and celebrated the first Sunday after Easter each year. In Diary entry 699 Jesus tells us, “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 fount of My mercy.” Read More

The Image of The Divine Mercy

In 1931, Our Lord appeared to Saint Faustina and told her to have an image painted as she saw Him with the signature, “Jesus, I trust in You”. (327) Jesus requested that this image be “venerated throughout the world” (47) and promised that it would be the source of great graces for souls and protect homes and cities where it was honored. Diary entry 570 promises and directs us, “By means of this Image I shall be granting many graces to souls; so let every soul have access to it.” Read More

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a prayer of intercession prayed on ordinary rosary beads in as little as ten minutes, yet in Diary entry 1541 Jesus tells St. Faustina, “My daughter, encourage souls to say the chaplet which I have given you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of death will be a happy one.” Read More

The Hour of Great Mercy

Every day we can obtain great graces for souls, particularly poor sinners, by immersing ourselves in the Passion of Jesus at the three o’clock hour. “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. I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My passion.” (1572, 1320) Let not one day go by without recalling the suffering and death of Our Lord, placing ourselves at the foot of the Cross, begging mercy for us and the whole world. Jesus will hear us and answer our prayers. This is His promise and this is our hope! Read More
