On September 13, 1935, Sister Faustina wrote: I saw an Angel who was the executor of God’s wrath…
Her own prayers were without power to hold back a terrible punishment, until the Holy Trinity was suddenly manifested to her. I began to pray earnestly to God for the world with words heard internally:
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. For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.
As Sister kept repeating the inspired prayer the Angel became powerless to carry out the ordained punishment.
The next day, as she was entering the chapel, Sister Faustina received instructions from the voice within her regarding the manner in which she was to recite the prayer she heard.
This is what we now know as The Chaplet of Divine Mercy, one of the most powerful devotions we have given to this generation by Jesus, that whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death…..Priests will recommend it to sinners as a last hope of salvation. In the Book of Truth Jesus stresses many times the importance of this prayer in saving souls JTM_msg_excerpts-DMC .
The Crusade Prayers are equally as powerful as these prayers come directly from God the Most High, from Jesus and the Blessed Mother, dictated to the end time prophet, Maria Divine Mercy, for a specific purpose – to save souls! No human words or prayer composed by mere mortals like us could defeat evil. God knew that to win this battle requires heavenly prayers. The only other ingredient required is a mouthpiece of a committed soul. Sister Faustina’s own prayers were not powerful enough either but when she started reciting the words she heard internally the Angel became powerless to carry out the ordained punishment.
What a great gift we have in our hands, the humble Crusade Prayer book.
