Prayer to the Divine Mercy

O Lord, behold here before You

a soul who exists in this world

in order to allow You

to exercise Your admirable mercy

and manifest it before heaven and earth.

Others may glorify You

through their faithfulness and perseverance,

thus making evident the power of Your grace.

How sweet and generous You are

to those who are faithful to You!

Nevertheless, I will glorify You

by acquainting others

of Your goodness to sinners

and by reminding them that Your mercy

is above all malice,

that nothing can exhaust it,

and that no relapse,

no matter how shameful or criminal,

should allow the sinner to despair of forgiveness.

I have offended You grievously,

O Beloved Redeemer,

but it would be still worse

if I were to offend You

by thinking that You were lacking

in goodness to forgive me.

I would rather He deprive me

of everything else

than the trust I have in Your Mercy.

Should I fall a hundred times

or should my crimes be a hundred times worse

that they actually are,

I would continue to trust in Your mercy.
