Jesus told St. Faustina about the 3 o’clock Hour of Mercy, “My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it. There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion that there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood. Meditation on My Passion will help you rise above all things.” (Diary, 1572, 369,1184)
