Divine Mercy Novena, Eighth Day
“Today bring to Me the Souls who are in the prison of Purgatory, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice.”
Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.
Daniel 2:22 (God) reveals deep and hidden things and knows what is in the darkness, for the light dwells with him.
“My child, those who think that what they do in darkness will go unnoticed are gravely mistaken. But even more tragic are those who do not even wish to hide their sin, but display it openly and encourage others on the path of sin. There is much reparation to be made for the shameful behavior of sinners. Do what you can, my child, and I will multiply the graces you win for souls. Do this for me, in my will, and there is nothing out of reach.”
Lord I am a worthless slave, but in your will I become your instrument. Therefore, accept my lowly offering and magnify it through the Immaculate Heart for my sake and the sake of all sinners, through Jesus the Lord. Amen.
