Divine Mercy devotees should be ‘forgiving’
MARILAO, Bulacan, April 15, 2012— Praying the Three O’clock prayer during the Hour of Mercy and the Chaplet Rosary during your waking hour won’t suffice to make one a devotee of the Divine Mercy. Be “apostles of mercy” if you want to count yourself in.
“The best way for us to be devotees of the Divine Mercy is to become givers of mercy. You cannot be a devotee if you are not forgiving, understanding and caring to people’s failures and sins against you,” he said.
Arenas, who is also the national director for Divine Mercy Apostolate in the Philippines, also encouraged the Catholic faithful to also undergo regular confession aside from praying the Three O’clock prayer and the Chaplet Rosary.
“Do some works of mercy for others because devotion to the Divine Mercy is rooted on the tripod of devotion, formation and action. Without the other, the rest will fall apart,” he added.
He likewise invited the lay to become devotees of the Divine Mercy and see the victory of Jesus during the Easter Season as man’s triumphant salvation from sin.
Earlier, Arenas called on the faithful to make it a daily habit to pray the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy, aside from the Three O’clock prayer during the Hour of Mercy. (YouthPinoy)
