Jesus, We Trust in You
The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him (299). By means of this image, I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works (742).
The First Painting shown below by artist Mr. Eugene Kazimirowski, who was hired by Fr. Michael Sopocko. St. Faustina consulted with this artist during the painting in 1934.

Regarding the Feast of Divine Mercy – Mercy Sunday, the First Sunday after Easter.
“My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy….Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.”
“….And who knows about this feast? … Even those who knows about this feast…. those who should be proclaiming My mercy and teaching people about it, do not know about it themselves. That is why I want the image to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter. And I want it to be venerated publicly so that every soul may know about it.”
“This Feast emerged from the very depths of My mercy, and it is confirmed in the vast depths of My tender mercies. Every soul believing and trusting in My mercy will obtain it.”
The Divine Mercy Group was all in for “Praying the Rosary for America”, the annual event started by “America Needs Fatima” in 2007.
Regarding Pure Love.
“Pure love gives the soul strength at the moment of dying. When I was dying on the cross, I was not thinking about Myself, but about poor sinners, and I prayed for them to My Father. I want your last moments to be completely similar to Mine on the cross. There is but one price at which souls are bought, and that is suffering united to My suffering on the cross. Pure love understands these words; carnal love will never understand them.”
“…There are souls living in the world who love Me dearly. I dwell in their hearts with delight. But they are few…. They are a defense for the world before the justice of the Heavenly Father and a means of obtaining mercy for the world. The love and sacrifice of these souls sustain the world in existence.”
“My daughter, if you knew what great merit and reward is earned by one act of pure love for Me, you would die for joy. I am saying this that you may constantly unite yourself with Me through love, for this is the goal of the life of your soul.”
“A single act of pure love pleases Me more than a thousand imperfect prayers. One of your sighs of love atones for many offenses …. The smallest act of virtue has unlimited value in My eyes because of your great love for Me.“
“Know, My daughter, that if your soul is filled with the fire of My pure love, then all difficulties dissipate like fog before the sun’s rays and dare not touch the soul.”
Pray, Pray, Pray
The Apostles’ Creed:
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 Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He arose again;
He ascended into heaven, and 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 Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
The Our Father:
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name:
Thy kingdom come:
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread:
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation: but deliver us from evil.
The Hail Mary:
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee:
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
The Fatima Prayer:
“O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those in most need of Your Mercy”.
(Our Lady at Fatima, 13th July 1917)
The Hail, Holy Queen:
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus;
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Let Us Pray
“O God whose only begotten Son has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life,
Grant that we beseech Thee
while meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise,
through the same Christ our Lord
Fatima prayer #2
and I love You.
I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe,
do not adore,
do not hope,
and do not love You.”
(The Angel to three children of Fatima, spring 1916)
Pray that the Nations turns back to the truth of Jesus Christ.
