Divine Mercy Chaplet for the Sick and Dying
“At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the pardon is the same. When this chaplet is said by the bedside of a dying person, God’s anger is placated, unfathomable mercy envelops the soul, and the very depths of My tender mercy are moved for the sake of the sorrowful Passion of My Son.” (Diary of St. Faustina #811)
If you would like members of the Saint Stanislaus Divine Mercy Cenacle to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for a loved one who is sick or dying please contact Pat Shovlin at 215.896.0871 or Eileen McKeron at 215.527.0269. Members of the Cenacle are available to come and pray the Chaplet at the bedside of your loved one.
