in Your infinite goodness.
Receive us all into the abode of
Your Most Compassionate Heart,
and never let us escape from It.
We beg this of You by Your
love which unites You to the
Father and the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind
and especially upon poor sinners,

Heart of Jesus.
For the sake of His Sorrowful
Passion show us Your mercy,

Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon the
company [of chosen souls] in Your vineyard –

strength of Your blessing.

For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which

Receive into the abode of Your
Most Compassionate Heart
the souls of pagans who as yet do not know You.

too,
together with us,
may extol Your wonderful mercy;
and do not let them escape from the

Most Merciful Jesus,
Goodness Itself, You do not refuse
light to those who seek it of You.

Receive into the abode of Your Most
Compassionate Heart the souls
of heretics and schismatics.
Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church,
and do not let them escape from the
abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart;
but bring it about that they,
too,
come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of heretics,
and schismatics,
who have squandered Your
blessings and misused Your graces obstinately
persisting in their errors.

Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love
of Your Own Son and upon His bitter Passion,
which He underwent for their sake,
since they,
too,
are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.
Bring it about that they also may glorify
Your great mercy for endless ages.

Amen.

Sixth Day
Today Bring Me The Meek and Humble Souls
and the Souls of Little Children.

Most Merciful Jesus,
You Yourself have said,
“Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart.”
Receive into the abode of Your Most
Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls
and the souls of little children.
These souls send all heaven into ecstasy,
and they are the heavenly Father’s favorites.
They are a sweet-smelling bouquet
before the throne of God;
God Himself takes delight in their fragrance.

These souls have a permanent abode in
Your Most Compassionate Heart,
O Jesus,
and they unceasingly sing out
a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon
meek and humble souls,
and upon the souls of little children,
who are enfolded in the abode of the Most
Compassionate Heart of Jesus.
These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son.
Their fragrance rises from the earth
and reaches Your very throne.
Father of mercy and of all goodness,

and by the delight you take in them:
bless the whole world,

praises of Your mercy for endless ages.

Venerate and Glorify My Mercy.

Most Merciful Jesus,
whose Heart is Love Itself,
receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate
Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and
venerate the greatness of Your Mercy.
These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself.

In the midst of all afflictions and
adversities they go forward,
confident in Your Mercy.

These souls are united to Jesus and
carry all mankind on their shoulders.
These souls will not be judged severely,
but Your mercy will embrace them
as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon
the souls who glorify and
venerate Your greatest attribute,
that of Your fathomless mercy,
and who are enclosed in the
Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.
These souls are a living Gospel;
their hands are full of deeds of mercy and their spirit,
overflowing with joy,
sings a canticle of mercy to You,
O Most High!
I beg You O God:
Show them Your mercy according to the hope
and trust they have placed in You.
Let there be accomplished in
them the promise of Jesus,
who said to them,
“I Myself will defend as My own glory,
during their lifetime,
and especially at the hour of their death,
those souls who will venerate My
fathomless mercy.”

Eighth Day
Today Bring Me The Souls Who Are In the Prison Of Purgatory.

Most Merciful Jesus,
You Yourself have said that You desire mercy;
so I bring into the abode of Your
Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory,
souls who are very dear to You,
and yet who must make retribution to Your justice.
May the streams of Blood and Water
which gushed forth from Your Heart put out
the flames of purifying fire,
that in that place,
too,
the power of Your mercy
may be praised.

Eternal Father,
turn Your most merciful gaze upon the
souls suffering in Purgatory,
who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate
Heart of Jesus.
I beg You,
by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son,
and by all the bitterness with which His
most sacred Soul was flooded,
manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under
Your just scrutiny.
Look upon them in no other way than
through the Wounds of Jesus,
Your dearly beloved Son;
for we firmly believe that there is no limit to
Your goodness and compassion.

Amen.

Ninth Day
Today Bring Me The Souls Who Have Become Lukewarm.

Most Compassionate Jesus,
You are Compassion Itself.
I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your
Most Compassionate Heart.
In this fire of Your pure love let these tepid souls,
who,
like corpses,
filled You with such deep loathing,
be once again set aflame.
O Most Compassionate Jesus,
exercise the omnipotence of Your
mercy and draw them
into the very ardor of Your love;
and bestow upon them the gift of holy love,
for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm
souls who are nonetheless enfolded in
the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.
Father of Mercy,
I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son
and by His three-hour agony on the Cross:
let them,
too,
glorify the abyss of Your mercy.

Amen
