April 13, 2020 Reflection – Monday of Easter Week, Divine Mercy Novena Day 4
(c)Mary TV – A Zubac 2020 April 13, 2020 Monday of Easter Week Divine Mercy Novena Day 4 Dear Family of Mary! On this 4th day of Easter, we realize how very much the prayers for Divine Mercy are united with the joy of Easter. The very heart of the Easter message is Divine Mercy. It is the Triumph of Divine Mercy that Jesus achieved through His Passion, Death and Resurrection. Divine Mercy is the most precious fruit of Jesus’ Sacrifice. Jesus died for all souls, that they be saved! Today in the Divine Mercy Novena we pray for an intention that is very dear to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for those who do not believe in God and do not know Him yet. These are the souls that cause the most suffering for Jesus and Mary! They long for these souls to recognize their love and embrace it. Let us pray with all our hearts that all souls will hear Our Lady’s call. Our Lady told us: November 25, 2003 “Dear children! I call you that this time be for you an even greater incentive to prayer. In this time, little children, pray that Jesus be born in all hearts, especially in those who do not know Him. Be love, joy and peace in this peaceless world. I am with you and intercede before God for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady has a burning love for those souls who do not know her Son, or do not yet love Him. She longs for them to be united to her Son. St. Faustina also was given by Jesus a great desire that souls would recognize and love Him. She wrote: Christ, give me souls. Let anything You like happen to me, but give me souls in return. I want the salvation of souls. I want souls to know Your mercy. I have nothing left for myself, because I have given everything away to souls, with the result that on the day of judgment I will stand before you empty-handed, since I have given everything away to souls. Thus, You will have nothing on which to judge me, and we shall meet on that day: Love and mercy … (Diary, 1426) And so today, we pray for all those souls who do not yet know or love Jesus…May they be given the grace of conversion and faith!! Divine Mercy Novena Day Four Today bring to Me THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME. I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My Heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.
