Be merciful just as your Father is merciful.(Luke 6:36)
The scriptures are filled with examples of how to trust in God and ask for His mercy - the psalms; the faith of Abraham and Moses who pleaded and “bargained” with God; the man who persuaded his friend to get up in the middle of the night to lend him some bread; the persistent widow who secured justice from the unjust judge; the Canaanite woman who “argued” with Jesus about her right to His mercy; and the witness of Mary, whose appeal for mercy at Cana led Jesus to perform His first public miracle, thus acknowledging that His time had indeed come.
Pope John Paul II echoes this scriptural message with a new urgency for our own times :
“At no time … especially at a moment as critical as our own – can the Church forget the prayer that is a cry for the mercy of God … The Church has the right and the duty to appeal to the God of mercy ‘with loud cries’" (Rich in Mercy, 15).
To Blessed Faustina, Jesus revealed this same message once again. He gave her three new ways to ask for mercy on the strength of His passion : the Chaplet, the Novena, and prayer at three o’clock; and He taught her to transform her daily life into a continuous prayer for mercy. Through her, He calls us all to ask for His mercy.
"Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion (1146) … Beg for mercy for the whole world (570) …
No soul that has called upon My mercy has ever been disappointed (1541)."
