This Novena is associated with the message of Divine Mercy, in that it seeks to encourage us to entrust our cares and worries to Our Blessed Lord, totally.
It is not always easy to surrender our desires and anxieties to the Lord as we have our own ideas about the way things should take place. Our attempts to ‘sort things’ often leads us to worry more and may not be for our good.
In this Novena, you will learn to turn to Jesus more and more. As you read the verses preceding each decade, His words will slowly take effect and you will learn to turn to Him, rest and Trust in Him, which is what He desires for us.
In the words of St Augustine, “Our hearts are restless, until they rest in You.”
