BLESSING of IMAGE OF DIVIINE MERCY for Veneration.


Almighty and Eternal Father,  in Your goodness and by Your own design, bless and sanctify this Image of the Divine Mercy, of Your dearly Beloved Son, which has been fashioned to reveal to us, the great Love of our crucified and risen Saviour, the Divine Mercy personified.

Help us to call to our minds the Streams of blood and water that have gushed forth from His pierced heart to be for us a continuous font of Mercy.

Grant to all who invoke Your mercy with this image before their eyes, the grace of true repentance pardon and peace.

Shield them from every danger to soul and body in this life.

Jesus, our loving Saviour, establish in this image the throne of your Mercy.
Pour out upon all of us who approach it with faith and trust, the purifying, healing and santifying rays of grace ever emanating from it as a blazing star.

Gaze upon us as you did from the Cross with your great love and mercy, so that we may be filled with your grace.

Through this Image may your Divine Mercy triumph over all the powers of evil.  May all who venerate this Image never perish
May it be their joy in life, their hope in death and their glory in eternity forever and ever.  AMEN




--"Eternal Father I offer You, the body and the blood, soul and divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and the sins of the whole world.   For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."   (part of the Chaplet prayer of Divine Mercy)

RELIC (1st Class) of Saint Faustina will be available for veneration at St Bonaventure's Catholic Church, Railway Pde. LEURA and special devotion to the Divine Mercy on the 1st Sunday of the Month commencing at 3.00pm till 4.45pm before the 5.00pm Mass. 

LEURA - a tourist area in the Blue Mountains about 1 and a half hrs drive from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
A Catholic devotional powerful prayer has sprung from locals believing the message of Saint Faustina (A Polish nun from 1933) who wrote a Diary about the happenings to her re real and true apparitions of Jesus Himself to her with His "message" of Divine Mercy to the world.  It was already a Gospel message, but Jesus said he wanted the world to know and realise his unfathomable mercy for mankind and that God the Father would save the world and all His children who believed in His mercy to all sinners.

A most powerful prayer (in these special words) was asked to be recited for great mercy to be granted to a soul who was the receiver of this prayer.  Saint Faustina states in her Diary that she prayed for a city with these prayers and saw the marvels the Lord granted it.

This prayer is called the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy - and in essence these are the words:-

"Eternal Father, I offer You, the body and blood, soul and divinity of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world"
The response then is prayed:-
"For the sake of His sorrowful Passion (on the cross), have mercy on us and on the whole world.
This is of course wonderful news!

This devotion invites all to join and also venerate a first class relic of Saint Faustina on the first Sunday of the month at 3.00pm at St Boneventure's Catholic Church, Railway Pde, LEURA.  Hopefully we will see you there this Sunday afternoon.  Music by Catholic Gospel singer, Stasia Very will lead the praise for the devotion.  May God bless you.

ABOUT THE DIVINE MERCY:

On April 30, 2000, Pope John Paul 11 canonized the Polish nun St Faustina Kowalska (1905 - 1931).  He officially endorsed with this at the same time the authenticity of the messages of Divine Mercy and elevated their central importance for the Third Milennium. "Proclaim to the whole world My unfathomable mercy" Jesus encouraged his 'secretary' again and again. "Who already knows about it?" (see www.HeavenlyMotherMusic.com) beautiful hymns on Divine Mercy.

On February 22, 1931, St Faustina saw the Lord in a vision in the same way as He is portrayed it, the image. As a signature she was to use the decisive words "Jesus I Trust in You!" On the same day, the Lord revealed His desire that the first Sunday after Easter he celebrated as the Feast of Mercy. Along with the image and the feast, God gave through St. Faustina many other very simple but powerful means to beseech His mercy for the world.  Among these is the novena above all and the Hour of Mercy, in remembrance of the hour of Jesus' death.  Through innumerable answered prayers God proves His fidelity to the promise, especially in regards to the Chaplet of Mercy.  "What great grace I will confer to the soul who prays this chaplet!"
