«At three o’clock in the afternoon I implore My Mercy especially for sinners and even for a brief moment immerse yourself in My Passion, especially in My abandonment at the time of death. It is an hour of great Mercy for the whole world. I will allow you to penetrate into My mortal sadness. In that hour I will not refuse anything to the soul that begs Me for My Passion … ».(from the Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska, page 703)
“My daughter, every time you hear the clock beating the three, remember to immerse yourself in My mercy, adoring and exalting it; he invokes his omnipotence for the whole world and especially for the poor sinners, for it was at that hour that he was thrown open for every soul.
In that hour you will get everything for yourself and for others; in that hour grace was given to the whole world, Mercy won justice. My daughter, at that time try to do the Via Crucis, if your commitments allow it and if you can not do the Via Crucis, enter at least for a moment in the chapel and honor My Heart that in the Blessed Sacrament is full of Mercy.
And if you can not go to the chapel, gather in prayer at least for a brief moment where you are. I want the cult of My Mercy from every creature, but first of all from you, because I have made you know this mystery in the most profound way. “(From the Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska, page 820)
