Did you know that 3.00 pm /1500 hrs – is the “hour of Divine Mercy” or the “hour of great mercy”? In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus specified 3.00 pm each day as the hour at which mercy was best received and asked her to pray the Chaplet of Mercy and venerate the Divine Mercy image at that hour. Pick up her book Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul and read all about that magical encounter.
So when you’re thinking how to become a 24/7 Catholic, start small. Add a daily alarm to your cell phone. I promise, it will be a welcomed pause to your day and a quick reminder of what’s truly important in life. Your office, friends, family will get used to it…. even chuckle about it.
And when you’re ready, YouTube “The Divine Mercy Chaplet.” , it changed my morning commute forever.
