Did you know that the prophet, stigmatist, mystic and Third Order Franciscan Marie-Julie Jahenny (1850-1941) who was approved by her local bishop in 1875 was given beautiful messages about God's Divine Mercy? Of interest, they correspond exactly with the revelations given to St. Faustina (1905-1938). 

Here are the messages Marie-Julie Jahenny received:

St. Michael's WARNING - a Time of  Scandals - INVOKE THE DIVINE MERCY:

(September 29, 1879): "Scandals will pass before your eyes. Just pray and invoke the Divine Mercy. You should expect to see it at all. The heart of the Church is more than a bleeding wound. It does not demand (or request) the conversion of poor sinners. Today, crime is carried to the altar ... the Lord is offended by those who should serve Him."

Our Lord would later complain to Marie-Julie of a corrupt and fallen clergy causing great spiritual damage, it is the crimes of the clergy that will force down the chastisements:
 (September 21, 1881):

 "As with our Lord who leaves escape bitter complaints against His people, especially on His apostles that no longer respect Him, who have outraged him and who make the Holy Church suffer, He showed me a deep wound in His Divine Heart and He told me:

"The Holy Church is wounded by a similarly large number of them that should comfort her and (but) are only making it sad."  "If you did not want to accept for them your immense sufferings, (i.e Marie-Julie's offereing as a victim soul) I would have weighed down My arm charged with punishments. Your charity has sustained them, but the chastisements when the time comes will be no less great; they force Me to strike. They lose their respect for the confessional; they leave the rules that the Church orders them (to follow) and they are the cause of many of the offences that (they) make."

"Woe to the priests who do not think about the immense responsibility they will have to render to Me! They are the cause of an evil beyond measure. They are fierce against the good that I operate on the Earth to awaken the Faith, to excite souls to serve Me more faithfully." "Soon, they will be punished terribly."

Marie-Julie: "I tried to implore mercy."
Our Lord: "I am listening, but for a very little time."

And with a loud voice, He added:"And the pastors of the Church, how are they in their faith? (Or, where are they in their faith?) The largest number is ready to give up his faith to save his body. The Church weeps; the pain they cause will never be repaired. In a short time, the pastors of the Church will have spread scandals all over and they will give the last spear thrust to the Holy Church. Let this (message?) go (forth) so that the Church knows how I suffer in the person of my priests and that she has compassion for My pain. They put Me in their hearts amidst great and terrible
mistakes. (i.e., priests also receive the Blessed Sacrament unworthily?) Their responsibility will be terrible."

Notice, in order to survive the corruption that would infect the Church, we were to INVOKE THE DIVINE MERCY.  Our Lord as the SACRED HEART said he was listening to Marie-Julie's pleas of MERCY before the chastisements, but ONLY FOR A LITTLE, His SACRED HEART and His DIVINE MERCY ARE RELATED. 

A Period of Mercy before the Days of Justice and Chastisements

(September 29, 1881): St. Michael to Marie-Julie: “Friends of the Sacred Heart, I stay with you, your company is that of Jesus, you are generous and brave soldiers. The Lord desires me to tell you these words: Get ready brave servants of God as the Divine Master will soon come first in His Mercy, secondly in His righteous anger and vengeance. He wants me to say this word to His present friends and I have done my duty.” St. Michael then shows her a sword with which he will help the faithful Christians in the evil times: “This is the sword that I delegate to the friends of God, this is mine, (he shows her his own sword next to the other) they are similar, they both bear the seal of the Lord, it is the Name of Jesus written on the blade, well engraved. Dear friends of the Lord, we are here on the threshold of Mercy and the threshold of the justice of God.”

(Notice, it is the same message given to St. Faustina: God would grant a great period of Divine Mercy before the time of Justice and chastisements.  Apparently, St. Michael announces the 'Divine Master will  soon come first in His Mercy'.  Is this a possible prediction of the revelations that would later be given to St. Faustina?  Notice also, to anyone claiming that the Divine Mercy message is a falshood intended to supplant devotion to the Sacred Heart, notice who St. Michael addresses in the message - Friends of the Sacred Heart.)

Our Lord would later reveal in 1919 to Marie-Julie that if the world turned to the Divine Mercy, the punishments and calamities would be AVOIDED, but many will fail to take advtange of this period of God's Mercy.  Instead, Satan will sow discord among the chosen and dearest of the Sacred Divine Heart:

(February 20, 1919)  Our Lord warned Marie-Julie: “As long as My people will not return to the faith, I will punish in many ways. I test just souls, (ie through sufferings and trials) and I take their tests of pure gold to compensate Me and console Me. A very sensitive pain that is tearing My Divine Heart, it is that I see the faith fall, even in many of My dear ministers: the zeal, dedication, falling with the faith. Ah! My Divine Heart is grieved and saddened. I assure you that on earth, for now, Satan wins, he is full of victories, he triumphs, he dominates, he loses souls, he is sowing disorder and anxiety in My most beloved of the chosen and the closest to My Divine Heart.

Ah! If My people returned to MERCY! At an instant, I will forgive all, I will forget everything, I will save all souls, I will take away the calamities, I will precipitate Satan with all his minions to the bottom of the abyss. But no, no, very few return to grace; indifference is everywhere, souls are lost without regret and precipitate into the abyss without reflection. And yet My Divine Heart desires that the triumph is complete."

(Note: If Satan was already sowing disorder among the closest to the Divine Heart back then, that is, among the faithful, could Satan have been attacking THIS DEVOTION TO DIVINE MERCY since people will refuse to turn to it?  Our Lord said if the people turned to His Mercy, that would stop the calamities, the promised chastisements, Satan and his minions would have been thrown into the Abyss.  Could this have been a warning against the fericious attack that is now happening among the Faithful regarding the Mercy Devotion?  The Sacred Heart says His Heart will still TRIUMPH in the end.  Turning to God's MERCY would have made the TRIUMPH of the SACRED HEART, that means the Restoration of the Church and the Age of Peace, come sooner without the chastisements, but the Sacred Heart reveals few will turn to His Mercy.)


(March 28, 1931) Our Lord complained to Marie-Julie: “Oh My daughter I am a God of trust and love. I am a FATHER OF MERCY and of holy abandonment. I have many priests, they never preach on My Love or My goodness or My Confidence, nor on My Mercy. PREACH TRUST BY MY WILL. Make known My goodness, I am not loved because they do not preach all that is beautiful in Heaven that would make them love Me. Pray for the priests so that the Holy Spirit (becomes?) their breath (in preaching) that they may make Me loved.”


Our Lord to Marie-Julie (July 23, 1925): “It is so easy to please Me: a good will suffices Me, YOUR TRUST IN MY MERCY WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, PARDON ALL, there remains nothing but love as a beautiful white flame that rises and descends, the Beloved visiting His beloved, it is His beloved visiting its Beloved. (i.e. in the Blessed Sacrament). Here is for Me My Heaven on earth: your beautiful souls who make reparation and compensate Me in receiving Me and visiting Me, (in the Blessed Sacrament).

My little spouses, do you know what name I love so much? That on which I smile and My Heavenly Father is happy: FATHER OF MERCY, it is My joy. You delight Me. It is My Name that I love because I AM ONLY MERCY. It is a joy for all of Heaven.

Ask of Me under this beautiful name Father of Mercy, grant me, accord me.’ You will feel in your souls a very sweet and penetrating grace, and I will add a sweet consolation.”

Marie-Julie Jahenny confirmed there was never a time that she did not feel consoled whenever she invoked Our Lord’s mercy.

(Note: Don't forget the first Sunday after Easter is DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY: a complete plenary indulgence and forgiveness of sin is granted if you go and make a sincere confession and receive Holy Communion on that day.

If you still have doubts concerning the feast of Divine Mercy and how receiving Communion on the day will forgive all your sins (after confession of course), remember, the Church has the power to grant a Plenary Indulgence, and Our Lord said to Marie-Julie Jahenny when we receive Communion with trust and love of His Mercy: “YOUR TRUST IN MY MERCY WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, PARDON ALL”. How can there be any doubts about the validity of the Divine Mercy feast day after that?)

Our Lord continued this message to Marie-Julie Jahenny:

Holy Communion: IT IS LOVE AND MERCY

Our Lord: “O my dear soul, do not forget that in Holy Communion is Mercy and Love Who give themselves to misery.” (We are miserable sinners, and it is for this very reason Jesus has deigned to come to us in the Blessed Sacrament as Love and Mercy.)


Offer your heart to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Joseph that they may purify it and make it a worthy place for the Heart of their Son in Holy Communion.

Our Lady to Marie-Julie Jahenny: “My little children, moments before Holy Communion let me take your heart of flesh with all that is in it and I will purify your lips up to your heart so that there will not be anything left, (i.e. impurities /imperfections). The perfume will be the lily of my purity, mixing the scent of holy humility and beautiful charity, beautiful charity that so has often has her beautiful white robe torn. My little children, ask me, ask St. Joseph who will place the holy scent of his holy death and afterwards let me purify in the sight of all Heaven the place of your heart, I will put it in mine with all its holiness, with all its beauty. It will be the Eucharistic Altar where Jesus will rest, it will be His heaven in my heart where the angels will love it and I will crown this throne of lilies, violets and roses, I will be the guardian of this divine Treasury. The angels will guard and nothing will tarnish the beauty of the tabernacle. It is my Immaculate Heart.”

Then, unite your heart to the DIVINE MERCY:

And then, my little children, tell the Beloved that you no longer have a heart yourselves, tell Him to grind it under the wheels of Divine Mercy and tell Him that the Divine Mercy brings these ashes to the ends of the world with these words: Love, Pity, Mercy, Recognition and Peace to the Earth and thanksgiving to the Adorable Heart that made of our miseries marvels of Mercy and sweet charity for the guilty souls (sinners).”

Those Who Trust in His Mercy will Die a Happy Death

Jesus confirmed to Marie-Julie Jahenny: “Oh! My little souls, I am Judge only for the soul that refuses My Divine Mercy.” In other words, He will be a Merciful Saviour and not a strict Judge to those die trusting in His Divine Mercy. (Same message to St. Faustina!)

Without Imperfections, there would be no need for Divine Mercy:

Our human miseries draw more Mercy upon us when we ask for It, for love and trust in Christ’s Divine Mercy forgives our imperfections, which will be blown away:

The Divine Heart to Marie-Julie Jahenny (September 24, 1925): “My little souls, I leave you much misery, to make you merit, if I remove them all what is there that I will give you in Heaven since the imperfections is the work of Divine Mercy! O what a great work, this Mercy.” “I form the diadem of your immortal crowns and the waste of your imperfections, the breath of Mercy blows them away. There will not remain the smallest particle, nothing but Mercy united to love and love to Mercy.” “I have come to tell you how much I love you and fill you with My most tender peace, and assure you of the beauty of your souls.” Marie-Julie: “Enough Divine Heart of Love. Your love is a great pain because we cannot (love), to the depth in which it crucifies us in the desire to love.” (Marie-Julie cried out it was a great pain not to be able to love God as much as she desired.) The Divine Heart: “My little souls content yourself with the desire to love Me. (The desire to love Him is enough.) I am content with your love, your good will. I am content with the desire to love Me and all of Heaven has its share of jubilation, and all of Heaven sings hymns of love while waiting for you.”

Our Lord to Marie-Julie (March 28, 1931) : “If there had been no misery, there would be no Mercy, as I am good with a sweet smile that seems to say – do you understand Me?”

The Divine Heart to Marie-Julie (July 19, 1934): “Pains of the heart, I give them to you as to reward you. I do not afflict you above your strength. If there had been no misery Mercy would not have been invented. I want to see all My loving souls to receive My Cross with open arms and kneeling, do not murmur. I permit, little souls, that you do not feel anything in your souls, it is the great moment of merit.” (i.e., when no spiritual consolation is felt when we are afflicted with temptations and suffer when combating our failings. It is because of our failings God is so merciful towards us. Our struggles also earn us more merits.)

A message to those who are devoted to His Mercy and who spread devotion to this work of the Cross and the Divine Mercy:

Our Lord to Marie-Julie (September 3, 1925) “I unite you, little souls that I love and I choose to do much good, to sow much peace in souls and still much merciful love of mercy (this was said twice), love of Mercy. (We are called to spread Christ's message of peace, and LOVE OF HIS MERCY.) I give you this grace to be at the painful epoch of true mercy-bearers for many souls. You save Me souls by all the divine gifts that I give you today in My tenderness. Oh, I love you.” (...) “I love you so that I leave you in My goodness where I want you, My little apostles of My Divine Heart, of My Cross and My Mercy for the guilty souls (sinners) who no longer know Me. My little spouses, you replace My priests who will be lacking in many places. (i.e. we must be the apostles of Mercy where and when there are few priests who preach about it.) Beautiful mission invented by My Divine Love and My Divine Mercy.” (This was said twice.)


Regarding St. Faustina and how to obtain the Divine Mercy Indulgence:

St. John Paul II not only declared Divine Mercy Sunday a universal feast of the Church but in 2002 he attached a plenary indulgence to it. This made private revelation’s promise “official” as “the Holy See institutionalized the Promise in the form of an Indulgence.”

First there are the usual or standard three conditions of sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayer for the intentions of Supreme Pontiff.

Next, the specific conditions or “work” required: “On Divine Mercy Sunday
  • in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy
  • or, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus (e.g. “Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!”).”
 For those unable to fulfill these conditions, there are explanations of what they can do for indulgences.
