In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy;
Sister tells us:
"I saw a great radiance, in the midst of it, God the Father. Between this
radiance and the earth I saw Jesus, nailed to the Cross
and in such a way that when God wanted to look at the earth, He had to look through
the wounds of Jesus. And I understood that it was for the sake of Jesus that
God blesses the earth." (Diary 60)
Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:
"....I saw an Angel, the executor of divine wrath... about to strike the earth...I
found myself pleading with God for
the world with words heard interiorly. As I was praying in this manner, I saw the
Angel's helplessness; he could not carry out the just punishment...."
The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on ordinary rosary beads:
"First of all you will say one 'Our Father', and 'Hail Mary', and the 'I believe
in God'. Then on the Our Father beads you will say the following words:
'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 Hail Mary beads you will say the following words:
'For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.'
In conclusion three times you will recite these words:
'Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world'.
Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:
"Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will recite it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests
will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there
were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this Chaplet only once, he
receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I desire that the whole world know My Infinite Mercy. I
desire to grant unimaginable graces to
those who trust in My Mercy...."
"....When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just
judge but as the Merciful Savior".
