Divine Mercy message - Divine Mercy for All
The Chaplet and Image One the beautiful prayers about mercy is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Jesus says, "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. When praying the chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will". This beautiful prayer is very short. When you recite it the chaplet takes only 10 minutes and when you sing it, only 15. When you are busy, you can say just one decade. When you are very, very busy, you can say, Jesus I trust in You! When you look at Jesus' image you are sure that He is with you always. We call this image the Divine Mercy image and venerate this image by acts of respect, because it represents Jesus. The image is to be on view in churches and not hidden in convents or monasteries. We are very happy that in our church we have the image of Divine Mercy. Every time you come to our church please venerate this image. Jesus says - "By means of this image I shall be granting many graces to souls who venerate my image”.

Odmawianie Koronki do Bożego Miłosierdzia i Obraz Chrystus zapewniał św. Faustynę, że obdarzy łaską nawrócenia i dobrej śmierci umierających, gdy będzie przy nich odmawiana Koronka do Bożego Miłosierdzia - "Gdy tę koronkę przy konających odmawiać będą, stanę pomiędzy Ojcem a duszą konającą nie jako Sędzia sprawiedliwy, ale jako Zbawiciel miłosierny (Dz. 1541). Kapłani mają zalecać odmawianie tej koronki zatwardziałm grzesznikom, jako ostatnia deska ratunku. Chrystus zapewnił, że wszyscy szerzący cześć Bożego Miłosierdzia i odmawiający koronkę  w godzinę śmierci nie doznają przerażenia, lecz będą mieć pokój duszy i spokojną śmierć. Przedstawił też podstawowe warunki, jakie powinny być spełnione przy odmawianiu koronki: ufność i wytrwałość w modlitwie oraz pełnienie dzieł miłosierdzia przez czyn, słowo i modlitwę. Odmawianie koronki zajmuje 10 minut, śpiewanie 15, gdy jesteś zajety możesz odmowić tylko dziesiątke, lub powiedzieć - Jezus ufam Tobie! Pan Jesus zachęca do oddawania czci obrazowi Bożego Milosierdzia i obiecuje wiele łask dla tych, kórzy będą oddawać Mu cześć w tym Obrazie. 

 

Peregrynacja Obrazu Jezusa Miłosiernego

W Niedzielę Bożego Miłosierdzia 12 kwietnia rozpoczynamy  w naszej parafii peregrynację obrazu Jezusa Milosiernego. Każda rodzina, która chce zaprosić Obraz do swego domu, proszona jest o wybranie daty w kalendarzu nawiedzenia umieszczonym przy wyjściu i wpisanie swego imienia i nazwiska. W każdą niedzielę na koniec mszy św. ks. Proboszcz będzie uroczyście wręczał obraz rodzinie, która chce zaprosic Jezusa do swego domu  i udzieli im uroczystego błogoslawieństwa.  Będzie to wspaniała okazja dla rodziny do wspólnej modlitwy i oddania czci Jezusowi Miłosiernemu. Rodzina zabiera Obraz do swego domu na cały tydzien i przynosi go do kościoła na nastepna niedzielę, aby kolejna rodzina mogła otrzymać obraz. Do obrazu zostana dołaczone modlitwy, które możemy odmawiać w czasie nawiedzenia. Rodzina, kóra zaprasza obraz powinna umieść obraz na honorowym miejscu w swoim domu i przynajmniej codziennie odmówić Koronkę do Bożego Miłosiedzia. W czasie nawiedzenia możemy zaprosić  własną rodzine i przyjaciół do swego domu na wyznaczoną wspólną modlitwę, aby oddac cześć Obrazowi Jezusa Milosiernego i upraszać łaski swojej dla rodziny.

About St. Andrew Bobola

For no matter where man looks, no matter how he strives, if he wanders far from God, he will not enjoy nature's tranquility, which he seeks, nor harmony and peace of soul; he will be restless and harassed, as though tossed by fever.

In seeking earthly riches, conveniences, and pleasures, in putting his trust in these, man pursues what escapes him, clings to what is crumbling down. For without God and His most holy law no right order is given man, no happiness worthy of the name, since man then lacks that solid basic norm by which to order his life; men in civil authority lack the basic norm for governing; and the community lacks the very foundation of moderation. And as you well know, only heavenly joys, which are eternal, and not what is in flux and transitory, can fill and satisfy the soul."

From the Encyclical of Pope Pius XII on St. Andrew Bobola, May 16, 1957
