Join Disciples of Divine Mercy

stfaustinaimageSt. Faustina was asked by Merciful Jesus to found a new religious order of sisters and brothers to give their lives interceding for mercy for the world and to do works of mercy in His name. As part of this intercession Jesus would grant mercy for sinners and bring people who had lost the faith to come back to Him and through this great work of intercession you would help save many souls.

With the help of her spiritual director, Blessed Fr. Michael Sopocko, these new congregations were founded in Vilnius and flourish today interceding for the world and working in His name.

St. Faustina was also asked by Jesus to find people who would become lay disciples in this important work and be park of these congregations in their own area. (Diary 1156)

These Disciples would be a movement inspired by the spirituality of St. Faustina and Blessed Fr. Michael Sopocko in doing the work of spreading His Divine Mercy message of seeking intercession for the world through our deeds, words and prayers.

Jesus established the Feast of Mercy and the new devotion to His Divine Mercy because He greatly desires to save every soul. (Diary 1182) One of the purposes of this new devotion was to tell the world through St. Faustina that the Day of Divine Justice was near. He told St. Faustina, “Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them”. (Diary 848)

Fr. Michael Sopocko was in fact the first person to make the message of Divine Mercy known to the world, on 26th April 1935, and it was he who kept the promise to have the first image painted, he commissioned the artist and paid for the painting out of his own pocket. It was he who paid for and got the first leaflets printed, including the Chaplet. All of which he did, where it all happened , in his own country, Lithuania.

June 29, 1935 - When I talked to my spiritual director [Father Sopocko] about various things that the Lord was asking of me, I thought he would tell me that I was incapable of accomplishing all those things, and that the Lord Jesus did not use miserable souls like me for the works He wanted done. (Diary 436)

To promote Devotion to Divine Mercy in word is to spread the Message, as we have discovered in the writings of Saint Faustina. In order to do this each Disciple should have a thorough knowledge of God’s Message and know fully what they are promoting.

Spreading the Divine Mercy Devotion in one’s own environment especially with the message given to St. Faustina and Blessed Fr. Michael Sopocko for the world.
Daily prayer of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

You will partake in the spiritual treasury of prayers and works of the Brothers and Sisters of Merciful Jesus in their daily lives and also in their offering of the daily Adoration of the Eucharist.

Jesus asked for disciples to carry out this work of Mercy in deed, word and prayer. So Disciples must take part in all three activities.
