About Saint Faustina
St Faustina was a Roman Catholic nun and mystic from Poland. Her apparitions of Jesus Christ inspired the Roman Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy, and earned her the title of “Secretary of Divine Mercy”.
The Chaplet & Novena of Divine Mercy
Our Lord gave St Faustina a powerful prayer He wanted everyone to say: the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
The Chaplet can be said anytime, but Jesus asked that it be recited as a Novena especially on the nine days before the Feast of Mercy (starting on Good Friday). (A ‘novena’ simply means ‘nine’, and usually refers to saying the same prayer on nine consecutive days).
He promised, “By this Novena (of Chaplets) I will grant every possible grace to souls”.
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is recited using ordinary rosary beads of five decades. The Chaplet is preceded by two opening prayers from the Diary of Saint Faustina, and followed by a closing prayer.
