(Ottawa, ON) June 6, 2014 –Inspired by the Holy Spirit, all across the globe, Christians are stopping to pray every day at 3pm, the time Jesus died on the Cross, in a good fight to conquer the forces of evil in the world and create peace.
Background: Jesus asked His People to Remember Him at 3 o’clock
In October 1937 in Cracow, Poland Jesus made a request via St. Faustina that His people remember Him at the time He died for our salvation.
Jesus said, “as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world–mercy triumphed over justice…immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant.” Words of Jesus: Diary of St. Faustina, 1572
A Global Peace Plan: Christians United in Prayer at the Hour of Mercy, 3pm
Jesus said, “Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.” (Diary of St. Faustina 300) Passion of Christ (passionofchrist.ca) is advocating for all Christians to stop and pray for the mercy of Our Lord Jesus at the time He died for our salvation, 3pm. “Only the love and mercy of Jesus will end violence and create peace in the world.” Sylvia Abretti, passionofchrist.ca
A Peace Proposal to Pope Francis from passionofchrist.ca
“Dear Holy Father, St. Francis of Assisi who bore the stigmata often cried as he meditated on the Passion of Christ. When asked why he was crying St. Francis said, “I am weeping over the pains and insults of my Divine Master. But what grieves me most is that men for whom He suffered so much never think of the torments He endured.”
A proposal to promote the Hour of Mercy (as per the request of Jesus) was sent to you. Will the Catholic Church consider implementing it? Will the Church encourage all Christians to stop daily in a solemn moment of remembrance of the Passion of Christ at the time Jesus died for us, 3pm? Will the Church declare that 3 o’clock is not “ordinary time” but the “Hour of Mercy”? Will the Church help to unite Christians in a global web of prayer that silences the forces of evil as we call upon the infinite mercy of Our Saviour Jesus at the time He died for us?” (More info: http://passionofchrist.ca/a-proposal-to-pope-francis/)
A Question to all Christians
What would the world be like if Christians all across the globe would unite in a daily solemn moment of true solidarity at the time Jesus died for us? Imagine the entire Christian world united in a moment of true fraternity, praying for the mercy of Our Lord, thanking Him for His great sacrifice, meditating on His sorrowful Passion while expressing sorrow for our sins, telling Jesus we trust Him and we love Him, asking Jesus to forgive us and to help us to love Him and one another?
Our answer: The world would be different!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Let’s make every day Remembrance Day in Honor of Our Saviour Jesus Christ!
We’ll be at the foot of Your Cross Lord, each and every day, united in prayer at the time You died for us, 3pm, repenting of our sins, immersed in Your sorrowful Passion, praying for Your mercy upon all souls. We love You Holy Lord! We trust in You Jesus!
