Divine Mercy Devotions

The Divine Mercy devotion is said on Fridays at 2.45pm at Our Lady’s (Belper). The primary focus of the Divine Mercy devotion is the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart towards those in need of it. As he dedicated the Shrine of Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II referred to this when he said: “Apart from the mercy of God there is no other source of hope for mankind.”

In the prayers that form the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, there are three main themes to the Divine Mercy devotion: to ask for and obtain the mercy of God, to trust in Christ’s abundant mercy, and finally to show mercy to others and act as a conduit for God’s mercy towards them. All are welcome to share in this devotion. Handbooks and leaflets are now available at the church.
