"Jesus, I trust in you!" 
Each day at 3 pm, the hour of mercy, we will continue to pray our Novena to Divine Mercy in the Santo Nino shrine.  Jesus said to St. Faustina:

"I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fount of My mercy, that they may draw strength and refreshment and whatever graces they need in the hardships of life, and, especially at the hour of death.
