Feast of Divine Mercy April 12, 2015 “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of my tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fountain of my mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the Divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened.” ~Jesus to Saint Faustina Kowalska
Dear Friend of Jesus King of All Nations, Jesus revealed that the Devotion to Him as Jesus King of All Nations is to be “a companion devotion to that of My Mercy as given to My beloved daughter, Faustina, and to that of My Sacred Heart as given to My beloved daughter, Margaret Mary.” (Journal 165). The Devotion is in furtherance of the devotion to Christ the King as taught by Pope Pius XI in his encyclical letter Quas Primas. At a time when our Culture of Death is growing, it is very appropriate to enthrone and venerate the image of Jesus King of All Nations. By doing this we will respond to the call of Pope Pius XI and receive abundant blessings. He wrote, “To secure an abundant and prominent harvest of blessings… it is necessary that our Savior’s royal dignity should be as widely as possible recognized… .” We must recognize Him as our True King and implore His mercy for our country and our families. He will surely graciously grant His mercy to those peoples and nations that recognized Him as True King! Jesus is our sure refuge in these most evil and truly dangerous times.
Jesus Christ appeared in visions to an American woman that began in 1988 and her revelations have continued since then. She recorded her visions in a Journal. On December 17, 1988, Jesus appeared to her and said that He desired that an image be made according to the vision and that it be named, “Jesus, King of All Nations”. He said, “My daughter, great are the graces which will be granted through the proper veneration of this image of Mine.” (Journal 6-7). The image was made according to the vision and named as Jesus requested. Jesus told the visionary, who remains anonymous under the direction of her priest spiritual director, “This image is to be a sign that I rule Heaven and earth, and My Kingdom, My Reign, is near at hand. . . . I give this image to mankind as a source of graces and of peace. My Most Holy Mother is preparing the great triumph. The triumph of her Immaculate Heart ushers in the Reign of My Love and Mercy. . . . I have come to entrust to you a message of great importance for the world. I tell you, My very little one, the days are coming when mankind will cry out to Me for mercy. I tell you, My child, that in these times only one thing will be given as a remedy. I Myself AM that remedy!!! Let souls give devotion to Me, through My Most Holy Mother, as ‘Jesus, King of All Nations’.” (Journal 7, 14, 159-160).
The image shows Jesus as King of All Nations crowned and holding the scepter of His kingship in His right hand. Above the scepter are three concentric rings as in one atom that symbolize the Most Holy Trinity, unity in God, in His Church and in nations. Rays of light shine from His wounds that symbolize His merciful graces. Blood flows from His wounded Sacred Heart upon all nations that symbolizes His love. Around the bottom of the image is the ejaculation, “O Jesus, King of All Nations, may your reign be recognized on earth.”
Jesus said, “This image, my child, must become known. My daughter, those souls who venerate this image of Mine will be blessed with my peace.” (Journal 7, 14-15). We should respond to His call by enthroning and venerating His Image to receive His divine mercy and peace.
Enthrone and Venerate His Image for Divine Mercy
Jesus invited us to enthrone His image and to pray before it. He said, “My children, come before My Image and pray for your countries. Pray for your people. Pray for your families. Pray for My Mercy which I will graciously grant to those peoples and nations that acknowledge Me as True King! I AM your sure refuge in these most evil and truly dangerous times.” (Journal 24). That is why it is so appropriate to venerate His image on Divine Mercy Sunday. He also said, “Enthrone this My image everywhere for I shall be powerfully present there and the Power of My Sovereign Kingship shall surely shield you from My Just Judgment. Be strong and do not lose hope. I Am with you to save you.” (Journal 418-419). His justice is coming soon! Please click here to learn how to enthrone your image of Jesus soon!
Patricia Hernandez of San Francisco wrote to me,
I just want to let you know that the image of Jesus, King of all Nations was enthroned here in San Francisco! Present were Father Francis Htun assistant at St Finn Barrs church in San Francisco. Also present were Simon, a seminarian from Burma and my parents, Gladys and Uriel Hernandez. Brother Pol Palencia was also present from the Legion of Mary. Brother Pol said it may be the first one in San Francisco!
May this be part of the renewed Church in San Francisco whose Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, is standing up with courage to the Culture of Death and presenting the fullness of the truth of the Catholic Church!
Jesus’ Prophecy and the Prophecy of Father Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, of a Renewed Church
Jesus King of All Nations prophesied that “a great renewal of My Holy Church, of mankind and indeed of all creation will follow the cleansing action of My Justice.” He said, “How greatly I Love My people! It is for your good O mankind that I allow My Justice to be poured out in order to awaken your conscience and correct your sinful behaviour. Yet you see how dearly I Love you in that I continually warn you and even seek to comfort you in the pain of the cleansing which is almost upon you.” (Journal 414). Similarly, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, then theologian Father Ratzinger, spoke about the future of the Church. He prophesied, “It will become small and will have to start pretty much all over again. It will no longer have use of the structures it built in its years of prosperity. The reduction in the number of faithful will lead to it losing an important part of its social privileges. It will be a more spiritual Church, and will not claim a political mandate flirting with the Right one minute and the Left the next. It will be poor and will become the Church of the destitute.” He prophesied that “when all the suffering is past, a great power will emerge from a more spiritual and simple Church” and that this renewed Church will be a sign of hope for those who have not come to know the love of God. Let us respond to Jesus’ request to “come before His image” and let us receive His Divine Mercy to ease the pain of His cleansing which is almost upon us!

Let us pray that Jesus is publicly proclaimed as our True King and that He receives the honor of soon being enthroned and venerated in His image in homes and Catholic churches throughout the world.
Pontius Pilate pointed to the scourged Jesus, and said to the crowd, “Behold, your King!” But the Chief Priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” (John 19:14-15). Our True King is Jesus Christ and not the United States government. His kingdom does not belong to this world, but He came into the world to testify to the truth. (See John 18: 36-37.) When our government passes laws that force us to act against our consciences, it is tyranny in defiance of the Divine Law and sovereign rights of Jesus Christ our True King and Author of Life. Let us behold our True King, as Pilate said, and not renounce Him like the Chief Priests in favor of our worldly government. We must stand with St. Peter and declare, “Obedience to God comes before obedience to men.” (Acts 5:29). Jesus once spoke of the Devotion saying, “My little one, I will work wonders through this Devotion to Me as ‘Jesus King of All Nations.’ ” Will you pray and show us your mercy by your financial support? Without your help for our apostolate, we cannot continue to spread the Devotion and the wonders of Jesus as He so desires.
Please help us to continue our work so that the image of Jesus will be enthroned in many homes and churches and He will work more and more wonders in our lives, our families, our nation and throughout the world!
