“Souls die despite my painful passion. I want, I want the salvation of souls: help me, my daughter, save souls “.
At this point, I want to persuade you, my friend, that from today you have the resolution to pray for the dying at least once a day. What prayer? A sword of mercy that rebels evil spirits.
Saint Faustina Kowalska (1905–1938), known as “the Apostle of Mercy”, writes in her Diary:
“When I entered the chapel, the Lord told me: My daughter, help save a dying sinner: recite the chaplet I taught you. When I began to say this prayer, I saw him dying in terrible torments and fights. He was defended by a Guardian Angel, but he was as if powerless against the greatness of this soul’s misery; a whole lot of satans were waiting for this soul. However, when I was praying for this lace, I saw Jesus in the form he is painted in this picture. The rays that came from the Heart of Jesus enveloped the sick and the powers of darkness escaped in panic. The patient gave his last breath calmly. Satan confessed to me: a thousand souls do me less harm than you do when you speak of the Almighty’s mercy”.
Now I know that you know what to do.
The chaplet is often recited on beads as a rosary beads prayer
Our Father, Who is in heaven, Holy is Your Name; Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. ,
Hail Mary, full of grace. Our Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
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, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall 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 on the OUR FATHER beads you will say the 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 (10) 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 (Diary, 474-476).
