What's in this for me? Well . . . .a once a year opportunity to delete the liabilities in your purgatory account .
Does that mean if I get called home shortly after Divine Mercy Sunday, I can totally skip purgatory?
Possibly!! No one can guarantee it . . . . but Jesus offers the best plan, depends on how you follow the plan, you would at least, probably, get less time in, more time out!!!
Is this for anybody? This is only for souls who know they're definitely going to die some time!!!

Jesus called it His plan of Divine Mercy, listen to Fr. Michael Gaitley explain Divine Mercy 101
Divine Mercy Novena This is the Novena to Divine Mercy. It goes for 9 days as laid out below. The first part of each section below divided into days, 1-9, is a direct quote dictated to Saint Faustina Kowalska by Jesus during an apparition in Vilnius (Lithuania) on Sept 23-24, 1934. The Novena in intended to be prayed over the nine days from Good Friday thru the eve of Divine Mercy Sunday (Saturday), but anyone can pray this novena at any time of the year.
“I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy, that they may draw therefrom strength and refreshment and whatever grace they have need of in the hardships of life, and especially at the hour of death.”
“On each day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I will bring all these souls into the house of My Father. You will do this in this life and in the next. I will deny nothing to any soul whom you will bring to the fount of My mercy. On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My bitter Passion, for graces for these souls.”
“By this Novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls.”
The words of Jesus to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska as recorded in her voluminous diary.

The Images
The images on the page Divine Mercy Novena show through graduation the likeness between the face of the Original Image of Divine Mercy and the face of the Holy Shroud of Turin. Much research is currently being done to evaluate how so many details in the two pieces of fabric could match so well.

The Divine Mercy Choir sings the Divine Mercy Chaplet HERE in Latin with English subtitles.
It is largely assumed that Eugeniusz Kazimirowski, the artist who painted the Divine Mercy masterpiece in Vilnius, had no way to personally examine the Shroud, let alone take hands-on measurements which would have been required at that time to make such an accurate superimposition. 

Pray, Hope and don't Worry!! St. Padre Pio

We pray that you and yours allow God's joy to fill your souls! May you all have a Blessed Easter!
