The Warsaw Story
The Important Connection between Abortion, the Destruction of Warsaw and the Divine Mercy Revelations
The Chaplet of Mercy is a prayer that Jesus dictated to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, a young Polish mystic, in the 1930’s. He directed this humble nun to pray it unceasingly and to encourage others to do the same, attaching to its prayerful recitation a myriad of extraordinary promises.
The Chaplet is prayed utilizing the beads of an ordinary rosary and may be recited in about ten minutes, or sung using various melodies in about twenty. (See How to Pray the Chaplet) With the permission of her spiritual director and Mother Superior the sisters and young women they nurtured in the convent began to recite the Chaplet as the Lord had requested.
Instructions on how to pray this prayer were included on the back of Divine Mercy holy cards printed under the direction of St. Faustina’s spiritual director Blessed Fr. Michael Sopocko and they began to be distributed to the delight of the young nun. Since her death in 1938, knowledge of and devotion to the Chaplet has spread throughout the world. Thousands upon thousands attest to its power which has assuredly contributed to the consensus that the recitation or singing of the Chaplet of Mercy has become one of the most popular pious practices in the Church today.
Yet, despite its efficaciousness and popularity, many are not aware of the circumstances in which St. Faustina received this prayer and thus its significance for current generations. Many are unaware that the Lord originally requested this prayer, in which we offer the Heavenly Father the Body and Blood of Jesus, be recited as a means to appease God’s wrath, especially for the sacrifice of the body and blood of the unborn child in the womb.
