Divine Mercy Prayers, Novena, and Chaplet

Beginning in 1931 and through her death in 1938, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska received revelations and visits from Christ. Christ dictated prayers that He wished Saint Faustina to pray in a novena (a nine-day prayer) from Good Friday through the Octave of Easter, known as Divine Mercy Sunday. The novena is often combined with the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which can also be prayed throughout the year.
