My dearly beloved daughter it must be known that I wish to form an army of prayer groups around the world. I will provide you, My army, with prayers that will need to be recited to save souls. These prayer groups will expand and within its ranks will rise a veritable army of devoted followers to bring forth the Truth of My Divine Promise of Salvation for all.

These groups will form the army as dictated by My beloved Father, which will tackle the darkness of evil caused by Satan and his believers and followers.

These prayers were written in Heaven and promise extraordinary Graces.

They have one purpose only and that is to save the souls of everyone; every child; every creed; each sex; every religious denomination and atheists. This is My greatest desire.

You, My disciples, are under My direction. The Graces I pour over you are already bearing fruit. Soon the powers I will give, through the Graces of the Crusade Prayers, will draw thousands of new souls.

How, you may think, can a small prayer group achieve such conversions? The answer is simple. It is because you are protected by My Father, and guided by Me directly, that you will succeed. You cannot fail.

Patience, silent prayer daily, the formation of prayer groups, daily recital of the Divine Mercy Chaplet, fasting and the Holy Rosary to My Beloved Mother combined, act as the perfect formula for saving souls.

At least two people must gather.  In time hopefully many will join in this Mission to save all souls. This can be done in homes or public places where you are permitted to gather. If possible this gathering should be in houses of worship. People are to meet as often as possible.  Even if you must start with one or two days a week and have different people coming each day if you are able to meet daily which is the goal, this will at least get you started.  If your group is large enough you can have a leader and organizer volunteer or several people can share that responsibility or just rotate and share this responsibility. Perhaps you can move from house to house.

It is recommended that you begin with prayer.

At least one Mystery of Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary prayed slowly and from your hearts paying attention to what you are saying and knowing what you are saying and to whom you are speaking is recommended both in the Rosary and in the Crusade Prayers and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. In addition all Litany Prayers and Crusade Prayers 1, 30, 33, 79 and 102 should be prayed daily.

Remember that Our Lady has promised to place a circle of protection around those who pray three Mysteries of her Most Holy Rosary daily.  Our Lady has asked people of all faiths to pray her Rosary.

How to pray the Rosary will be listed below.

Recent Messages, which have been given since the last meeting, should be read slowly and respectfully.  No one is to interpret the Messages because Jesus has already said that even Maria Divine Mercy is not qualified to interpret them.  An incorrect interpretation could turn souls away and the goal of this Mission is to reach out all souls of all faiths or no faith. No one is excluded.  It would be helpful if copies of the Messages you read can be handed out for those who do not have a computer.

It is recommended that all of the Crusade Prayers and Litanies be prayed giving adequate time when it is requested for people to add their own intentions. It is best for people to pray their intentions silently.  Perhaps people can bow their heads and then raise them when they are finished so that you can proceed without cutting anyone off.  Remember some people have large families and many intentions and it is important that these all be included.  In the Second Litany it is recommended that souls in complete darkness and those who will die this day be included with your other intentions.

If the group gets large enough perhaps a leader can stand at the front of the group so that they will know when people have completed their intentions and the prayers can continue.

Then the recital of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy from your hearts followed by the special prayer given by Our Lord which will be listed below. The Chaplet may also be sung.  The remaining Mysteries of the Rosary should also be prayed if time allows the group to do this together.  If not all can remain for the final Mysteries it is recommended that those who are able remain to pray them.  Remember that there is great power in your praying together as a Crusade Prayer Group.

Discussions of the Messages should be limited to direct and exact quotes from the original messages. It is highly recommended that all pray for discernment regarding the Messages because of the great danger in misinterpreting the Messages.  It is recommended that if you have difficulty in understanding a particular Message that you pray about it.

If the group gets large enough you can rotate the recitation of the Rosary from one side of the church to the other.

It is very important not to rush.  These Prayer Groups will do great work as they are part of God’s army in this battle for souls.  Prayer is the weapon.  Please try to keep in mind that the finer the prayer the finer the weapon.

While Our Lord has requested that we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3:00 PM, He has also requested that we pray it many times a day.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy

In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy.

Sister tells us:

“I saw a great Light, with God the Father in the midst of it. 
Between this Light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the Cross 
and in such a way that God, wanting to look upon the earth, had to 
look through Our Lord’s Wounds and I understood that God blessed 
the earth for the sake of Jesus.”

Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:

“I saw an Angel, the executor of God’s wrath… about to strike 
the earth…I began to beg God earnestly for the world with words 
which I heard interiorly. As I prayed in this way, I saw the 
Angel’s helplessness, and he could not carry out the just 
punishment….”

The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on 
ordinary rosary beads:

Start by making the Sign of the Cross:
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

“First say one ‘Our Father’, ‘Hail Mary’, and ‘I believe in God’.

Then on 
the large beads say the following words:

‘Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.’

On the smaller beads you are to say the following words:

‘For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.’

(Repeat these two prayers for all five decades).

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:

‘Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world’.

Conclude with the Sign of the Cross.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.Amen.

Then say:

Fill me now O Lord with the Gift of the Holy Spirit to carry Your Most Holy Word to sinners who I must help save in Your Name.  Help me to cover them, through my prayers with Your Precious Blood so that they can be drawn to Your Sacred Heart.  Give me the Gift of the Holy Spirit so that these poor souls can revel in Your New Paradise.

Jesus gave us the following request through Maria Divine Mercy:

Say this prayer every day after you recite My Divine Mercy and you, through your allegiance to Me, will help save My children.

Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:

“Say unceasingly this Chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who 
says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests 
will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most 
hardened sinner, if he recites this Chaplet even once, will 
receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to 
know My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to 
those who trust in My Mercy.”

“When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I 
will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just 
judge but as the Merciful Savior”.

How to Pray the Most Holy Rosary

Mysteries of the Rosary

The Church has used three sets of mysteries for many centuries. In 2002 Pope John Paul II proposed a fourth set of mysteries—the Mysteries of Light, or Luminous Mysteries. According to his suggestion, if you can only pray one mystery a day, the four sets of mysteries might be prayed on the following days: the Joyful Mysteries on Monday and Saturday, the Sorrowful Mysteries on Tuesday and Friday, the Glorious Mysteries on Wednesday and Sunday, and the Luminous Mysteries on Thursday.

Queen of Heaven and Earth.

Start by making the Sign of the Cross and blessing yourself:

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Then recite the Apostle’s Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, 
Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ,
 His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
 born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. 
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; 
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

Then say 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys (for the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity) and then 1 Glory Be:

Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

While meditating on the Mysteries, recite:

One Our Father (large beads)

10 Hail Marys (small beads)

1 Glory Be (before the next large bead) to make a complete decade of the rosary.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy.

Repeat these prayers for all five decades of the
Rosary.

Hail Holy Queen (or Salve Regina may be sung)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

(Verse) Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.  

(Response) That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Rosary Prayer

(Verse) Let us pray, 

(Response) O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and the snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Host cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

4. For the Intentions of the Holy Father

Catholics who say the Rosary in a group, or, individually before the Blessed Sacrament, 
may gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions, which includes prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father.

For the intentions of the Holy Father.

Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

Conclude with the Sign of the Cross, blessing yourself.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.Amen.
