TERESA OF CALCUTTA
God will fully satisfy every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”-Phil 4:19
Psalm 33, verse 18-19
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear him, upon those who count on his mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive through famine.
You cannot receive if you do not ask. Let us ask for God’s mercy and count on it, to deliver our soul from death and keep us alive through this earthly famine for ourselves and others. In fact one pious work we could do this week is a Novena to the Divine Mercy. In the novena Christ asks us to pray each day for a certain groups of people.
1. All Sinners
2. Priests and Religious
3. Devout Souls
5. Departed brethren
8. Those in purgatory
9. And the Lukewarm
A good time to pray the novena is the hour of Christ’s death. “At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy…”
Today if you have time would be a good day to read Saint John Paul II’s encyclical letter-Rich in Mercy.
