PRAYING THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET FOR THE SICK AND DYING DURING EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
We greatly encourage praying of the Divine Mercy Chaplet hourly worldwide for the sick and dying, especially during Eucharistic Adoration, in the presence of Our Merciful Lord. An Apostolic Blessing has been given by His Holiness, John Paul II to those who pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the sick and dying during Eucharistic Adoration. We ask all those who are adoring Him in the Blessed Sacrament, in praying the Chaplet and imploring mercy for the dying, to truly trust in God's Mercy, so that many souls will be saved.
Our Lord confirms this to St. Faustina by saying, "My Daughter, …Your duty will be to trust completely in My goodness, and My duty will be to give to you all you need. I am making Myself dependent upon your trust: if your trust is great, then My generosity will be without limit" (Diary, 548). So, as we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with an attitude of trust in the presence of Our Lord during adoration, we can be assured that we will be a vessel of Mercy for the sick and the dying.
GOD AND SOULS was the motto of St. Faustina. Our goal, as was hers, should be in saving souls. Our Lord asked her to pray and offer the Chaplet for sinners and the dying, saying: “Pray as much as you can for the dying. By your entreaties [that is, insistent prayers] obtain for them trust in My mercy, because they have most need of trust, and have it the least. Be assured that the grace of eternal salvation for certain souls in their final moment depends on your prayer. You know the whole abyss of My mercy, so draw upon it for yourself and especially for poor sinners. Sooner would heaven and earth turn into nothingness than would My mercy not embrace a trusting soul” (Diary, 1777).
