Hi - welcome to my blog. I am so glad you found me. I post a lot of Scripture quotes and God sayings with pictures, prayers, Catholic images and prayers, and saint quotes. I am a wife, mom and author. I am growing in my faith and my relationship with God is deepening as I do. I hope you are blessed by what I blog.

panis-angelicus:

Please pray for my sister-in-law. She’s pregnant and was admitted to the E.R. with chest pains. The doctors are currently trying to rule out the possibility of a blood clot in her lung.

Thank you for your prayers, and God bless <3

This novena can be said every hour for nine hours.  A novena could even be said on every half hour for 4.5 hours.  I hope it helps.  HUGS!

kahlaeesi:

Please please please send Danny some beautiful kind messages because he needs to stay in this world and he deserves to be here! I really can’t lose a friend right now. I am still assessing the situation at the moment and the severity, but please send your love and thoughts.

Danny - I am sure there are a lot of people who love you, need you, cherish you, and want the absolute best for you.  Life may seem bleak, but it does get better.  No matter how insurmountable your problems or concerns seem to be, know that they can be diminished and life can go on with hope and peace.  I will be praying for your peace of mind, your self-acceptance and self-love, and for you to have the courage and strength to face each new day as you battle your demons with the Lord.  He can and will carry you through this dark time and bring you out whole, healthier, and happier.  Hang in there!  Annie

I’ll post a prayer for someone who is suicidal on my blog…for some reason I can’t get it to insert here.  Blessings!

Praying for you - I hope this will help some.  Annie

Seventh Day

Most Merciful Jesus, Whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy.  These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself.  In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders.  These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.  These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High!  I beg You O God: show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You.  Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory.  Amen.

Now pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Chaplet of Divine Mercy

You pray this chaplet using an ordinary Rosary.

Holding the Crucifix make the Sign of the Cross. Then on the first bead you can pray either, or both, of these optional opening prayers:

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

And/or:

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

On the next three beads say the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Apostles’ Creed.

Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into Hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead.  He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.  Amen.

Then you pray the rest of the chaplet as follows:

On the single beads say:

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

On the next ten beads say:

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

After completing the five decades, recite the following, three times:

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Conclude with the following optional closing prayer:

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Sixth Day

Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart."  Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children.  These souls send all Heaven into ecstasy and they are the Heavenly Father’s favorites.  They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance.  These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.  These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son.  Their fragrance rises from the Earth and reaches Your very throne.  Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You take in them: bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Now pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
