Dear Family of Mary!
 
“…My children, it is a time of vigilance. In this vigil I am calling you to prayer, love and trust. As my Son will be looking in your hearts, my motherly heart desires for Him to see unconditional trust and love in them. The united love of my apostles will live, will conquer and will expose evil…” (November 2, 2016)
 
We are in a time of vigil. We are waiting and watching for the Lord. We are training the eyes of our hearts on the coming of Jesus, the One for whom we wait with great longing. And we are praying to Jesus to receive His great mercy for us, for all of us sinners.
 
Today, we can wait in vigil, and pray. Here is the Litany of Divine Mercy, written by St. Faustina. This is a prayer we can truly put our hearts into:
 
LITANY TO THE DIVINE MERCY
THE LOVE OF GOD IS THE FLOWER – HIS MERCY IS THE FRUIT

Eternal God, in whom mercy is unfathomable and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy, itself” (Diary 949).
 
“O Greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy, to Your compassion, O God; and it is with a mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth’s exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and through and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You, we implore You: fill us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our lives and at the hour of death. Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation’s enemies, that we may with confidence, as Your children, await Your final coming…” (Diary, 1570).
 
Keep vigil, dear friends! Keep vigil with Our Lady for all mankind.
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
