There are bans and restrictions everywhere around us due to the coronavirus pandemic that is spreading and gathering more and more. We do not have free access to contact with our friends, to work, education and medicine when it is not necessary. However, we always HAVE ACCESS TO THE TIME OF MERCY.
It is now that many human hearts are full of anxiety and tremble with fear of being infected with the deadly virus and its consequences, the Merciful God wants to give us the grace of peace and his healing love. LET US TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TIME OF MERCY!
Every day at 3 p.m. in prayer at the Hour of Mercy, let us stand under the cross of Jesus and immerse ourselves in the life-giving Blood and Water that flowed forth from His pierced side. There are no bans there. We can stand close to each other, even hold our hands and pray to embrace the whole world fighting the epidemy of coronavirus. Jesus said to St. Faustina: “As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — mercy triumphed over justice” (Diary, 1572).
In Poland, we also gather for the rosary prayer to stop the epidemy at 8.30 p.m. Let us entrust the fate of the whole world to Mary, Mother of Mercy!
