a powerful prayer...

the Chaplet of Mercy is a powerful prayer...most especially in these days (prayed as a novena - for nine consecutive days) before Mercy Sunday (coming up this week!)

Today is the fifth day of the novena - when we bring to God's infinite Mercy those souls who have separated themselves from the Church...God knows how to bring these "lost sheep" back into his fold.

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your Light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy...

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon these souls, separated from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.
