Divine Mercy Prayer
The three o’clock hour is the hour that Christ died on the cross. It was at this moment that the gates of Heaven opened up for souls, and according to the Diary of St. Faustina, Jesus said that it is the hour of great mercy. Whatever a soul asks of the Lord at this hour, he will not deny, as long as it is asked with love and trust in His Divine Mercy. This prayer was given to St. Faustina by Jesus to be said at the 3 o’clock hour each day.
You expired, O Jesus,
but the source of life gushed forth for souls
and an ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.
O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy,
envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
O Blood and Water,
which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us,
I trust in You.
